in reply to Religion in the Monastery.

I learned of Larry's Christianity through his speech about Postmodern Perl.

However, the Monastery has pictures of Buddhists (and geeks) in the top right. And like all programming languages, the ideal coding state seems to be Zen. So I'm not sure any Christian tendencies derive from the Monastery metaphor.

By the way, I think it speaks well of the Perl community that qw/ Ninja Samurai Knight / ∉ their lexicon — despite retaining the Oriental fetish. Perlers seem less barbarous, less teenaged, more humble, and more broad-minded than programmers in general.

[LanX]: hm just read an article on heise.de claiming that RPerl is 250 times faster. ... it's that even possible?
[marto]: under certain circumstances perhaps
[RonW]: as I understand it, RPerl "compiles" a subset of Perl to C, so I would expect the final executable to run a lot faster
[RonW]: Is there an English language version of the site?
[LanX]: but Afaik Perl is on average about 10-20 times slower than C
[LanX]: no
