A Perl beard is not usually well formatted.
It just grows from lack of care
late working hours give dirty collars
n modest clothes are best to wear
When you feel the bugs are scary,
weird enough to pull your hair
take a break , you big Perl guy
sleep on it and come back fair.
Perls got debug, n mods that Capture
every bit n trace out there
rest assured, there aint no language
that's got so much built-in flair
I found a new verb called perled
it means make the most of your *nix world
keeps you looking classy with text
makes your code sassy n best
and for the help the monks freely give
try to donate your time or a triv'
and e'en if you dont want to spend
at least vote on good posts a plent'.
what i love about strings is they are so mutable
what i love about TT is it makes HTML so usable
what i love about perlbrew is it relieves me of variables
what i love about Moose is it makes those large projects workable
what i love about perl is it starts ugly but ends up beautiful
You donít get to..
#Facebook you don't get to 100 million friends without making a few enemies
#CPAN you dont get to 140,458 modules without seeing a little baloney
#Cpanm you donít get to become our fav util without the brewís company
#Perl you donít get to be called the dead lang until you finish of us zombies
and #Perl 6- you dont get to be the defacto Perl , without giving a DATE of RELEASE :D woot woot.
Note -thanks to everyone on perlmonks and twitter for their sincere advice, which inspired me to write this piece.
I wrote my car in Perl, my project for today,
I started with use gas, and proceeded on my way,
But a friend who's eco-friendly, and perhaps a bit eccentric,
Changed it to require, and Acme::clean::electric,
And that's when things got strange, and all about was hectic,
Though, searching through the code i was not able to detect it.
I wrote my bed in Perl, to sleep upon my code,
I dreampt a fairy came, and turned me into a toad,
I hopped upon my pillow, bellowing, "oh gribbit!"
"If my princess frog arrives, the kiss, but who will give it?"
I woke up in a sweat, and after just a minute,
I fixed a nasty bug, and tons of others in it.
I wrote my house in Perl, to save a bit of rent,
I still don't have the money, nor an idea where it went,
But on that fateful day, when my friend came and arrived,
He found so many bugs, we're amazed that i survived,
Well, there was a patch or two, without a thought contrived,
That worked in the short term, but was longevity deprived.
And that's my life of code, which worked until a friend,
Or unconscious source, showed me what had to bend,
I might just try again, but plan before i do,
To use others' advice, (and check on CPAN too,)
For though it's great homemade, and i do adore home brew,
It usually is better, to sit and think things through.
