    strict!

    True laziness is hard work

      I just knew you would say that:)

        Predictability is good, at least when coding. Not so good in most games (obfu is a game) and war.

    I like my Perl the way I like my women: cute, powerful and incomprehensible.

    Sorry, but it had to be said. I just happen to think the old ones are the best.

      I'm having a tough time finding the reference for that. Hint?

      It is not at all clear (unless you follow--or at least look at--the link) that "traditionally" means Perl 1. Many of those votes probably really meant: "Perl 5 just the way I first learnt it on the knee of me grandpappy".

    Someday I will like Perl 6, But I've been waiting for that day for quite some years now. May be I should be happy with Perl 5.
