Re^2: What can bring the excitement back to Perl?
in thread What can bring the excitement back to Perl?
*sighs* Why on earth do we want to have our name everywhere? Where is the cachet in that? Perl gets the job done, period.
And, frankly, I cannot think of a time where Perl was ever buzzed about. Ever. Not even the halcyon dotcom days. It just never happened.
My criteria for good software:
- Does it work?
- Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
