in thread disadvantages of perl

The real question is: why come to a site full of Perl fans to see what's so bad about Perl?

I find 2 reasons:

  • Many Perl newcomers here at the monastery can give valuable experiences on what they are finding hard to learn of Perl
  • Also, the weak points of any subject should be spotted by experts in that subject, and perlmonks has more experts in Perl than a Python forum

Perl is great... but not perfect, that is what Perl6 is all about, no?

[tye]: disable /proc and then see what it does?
[davido]: then it reads from /etc/passwd to decide who my uid is.
[davido]: sorry, typed that before you asked me to disable proc
[davido]: but you stumped me; don't know how to disable proc.
[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
