in thread (OT) code prototyping

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?
