in thread (OT) code prototyping

Infact, I'm doing my work only in Perl and I thought prototyping code should be a fluent english. taking granted that i work in perl, how a sample prototype code looks like? I'm very much confused here....

    I thought prototyping code should be a fluent english ...

    Why? The monks that come here natively speak any of dozens of different languages. Why choose fluent English instead of fluent Mandarin Chinese or fluent Urdu or fluent Serbo-Croate?

    While some, maybe even most, may have a smattering of English, the one common language they all have -- assuming they're not total beginners -- is Perl.

    And Perl is exactly designed for capturing the semantic necessities and nuances of computer programming. Why would prototyping in English (or any spoken language) be more appropriate?


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

    Let me try to explain why your node was not well-received.
    • Your node title "code prototyping" was too general to convey what your node was about. I clicked on your node, hoping it to be about Software prototyping, perhaps asking an interesting process question about how best to use prototyping to debug software requirements. But it wasn't. So I was disappointed. In future, spend a bit more time to find a more specific, descriptive title, for example, "How to find system information (OS version, memory, cpu, disk, ...) on Linux".
    • Show some effort. Do some searching before you post. Provide any useful links you found. Show what you have tried so far, what worked well, what didn't. That way, you don't look like someone who is too lazy to do his own work and expects others to do it for him. Moreover, if you provide interesting links and ways to get Linux system information, others can learn from your efforts.
