Re^3: Reading too much into it?
in thread Reading too much into it?
No, I don't expect 5 seconds of effort. But that may not be the only factor. A new perl user reading that 1st link from google would be completely confused.
I guess my post is coming off a little too 'Kum Ba Yah'. It's not meant that way. It's meant to self-evaluation and self-service. If we keep smacking down real new interest in perl then where will we be? Is what we are perceiving in the OP real laziness? or is it frustration? I don't know (in this case) to a good degree of certainty. So I say default to, thinking these new users are frustrated and take the opportunity expand perl's user base.
