Why do you care "What people say"?
Does that affect how much jobs pay?
Some like to code in triplicate: String newString = (new StringBuffer(aString)).append(anInt).toString();
Whilst others prefer to masticate: char *newString = strcat( aString, sprintf( malloc( 6 ), "%6d", anInt ) ); (**)
For some, every step is very hard won: (*)
Perlers just like to get the job done: my $newString = $aString . $anInt;
Fashions, as we all know, have a tendancy to come and go.
But functionally, we wear clothes to keep warm.
A dried meat dress, will never suppress
the utility of jeans. Even if they're torn.
So decide for yourself, what's important to you.
Being part of the crowd who cry "Perl's dead!" aloud.
Or one of the thousands that, every day,
get the job done using Perl. Their way.
