[Discipulus]: php does not suck anymore?
[ambrus]: Discipulus: I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't suck as much as it's used to. it's like C++, it sucks because people still recursively learn from twenty year old PHP examples,
[ambrus]: and they try to use the obsolete features that PHP has to support only for compatibility with old scripts. C++ and PHP both have the problem that people can't forget the past, because when they google "PHP" plus the problme they want to solve, they find b
[ambrus]: ad code examples.
[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
[ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the
[ambrus]: formatting conventions of a journal or website can be quickly applied to it, and MS Office and LibreOffice has not quite solved this (although it's better for this than it used to be),
