I don't think Perl will be alone with these issues. I think Perl has had more years to grapple with a language that is very versatile and a community that is willing to allow its users to make up their own mind (be the end result pretty or ugly, nice or naughty).

I think Ruby, Javascript, etc... will have these same (and difficult) issues once they age and have larger existing code bases. (I think javascript has this problem already except now there are 100 magic libraries to choose from that many do similar things.... like CPAN without the nice-ness of CPAN).

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
