in reply to Re: Re: Perl is NOT OO but neither is Java
in thread What is it about perl that makes perl so cool?

Right, if you go back to that post, I say that Perl, Java, and C++ are all "hybrid-OO", to distinguish them from Smalltalk, Eiffel, Ruby, and (I think) Scheme which are all "pure-OO". But if asked of any of those are "OO", I'd say yes. I was only rallying against the (incorrect) meme of "Everything in Java is an Object! It's all OO!". Because that is wrong.

    Do you not think however that such classifications should not be used to create a top 10 of languages? OO is in the vogue atm however I really dont like to reject a language because it is not OO. I there are more pressing issues. As I have said in other posts atm I am coding java stuff for web, java was chosen becuase it is OO despite the fact that IMHO perl would be more apropriate as it is more suited to the problem space.

[Discipulus]: i invented also 'gired'
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, then that is a problem. I wanted to find total seconds of my entire .mp3 collection to do some math on it to see how many days of continuous music i have.
[LanX]: darn. .. I wanted to see Marine and Melonchon go to next round, just for fun xD
[Discipulus]: LA use Perl: traversing a dir tree is simple; foreach file mp3 $sec+= use Mp3::Info
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I was able to get the sum of the seconds on the command line using awk. Then I ran the result through a perl script and got the result. It came bach with 4 days, 9 hours, 56 minutes, 43 seconds.
[Lady_Aleena]: s/bach/back/;
[Discipulus]: gired anyway is the intermediate state between hired and fired (and vice versa;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipuluis, I don't know if I want to fight with File::Find. File::Find and I are not friends.
[Discipulus]: 4 day Bach is too muche even for me
[Discipulus]: LA you know who is paco?
