C++: Fire Support for Perl

in reply to Favorite programming language, other than Perl:

I had to hit the C++ button. Other languages may be a tad quicker (Assembler, C), easier to use (Java), or more Perl-like (Ruby, Python) but I find C++ and Perl to just work well together in the toolkit.

Perl's great for most things, and I only look away from it when I need raw speed. This pretty much rules out most of the languages listed. I used to reach for C in my youth, but now reach for the C++ and feel slightly happier with the OO and so forth..

When things need waking I reach for the printed perlguts and XS references and try and recall the stuff I taught myself last time I needed waking. It's slowly settling round my brain now though.

    Since a friend is holding a gun to my head, I had to vote PHP. I am truly sorry... this is not the way I feel... I mean I love PHP! (call for help!)

    work it harder make it better do it faster makes us stronger more than ever hour after our work is never over.
