in thread I work out/exercise this often

At least perl is the least stressful language I've used. It's laid back philosophy, ability to guess at what you mean, and "more than one way to do it, none of which are necessarily 'better'" all contribute to this. I think the most stressfull was (((((((lisp)))))) although debugging large legacy C code was not fun either.

[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
