in thread Since I discovered Perl, I've given up:


I was thinking much the same thing, but wondering how to put it into words.  Then I saw your post.

It captures the sentiment exactly, for me.  With Perl, it's no longer a question of "whether" it can be done, just "how" best to do it.  It always felt possible in C, but not ever quite so easy.

There's an amazing empowerment that Perl imbues one with, isn't there!  ;-D

    Ditto here. Perl gives me the confidence, that I can write a script to do what I need. Borrowing from Prarie Home Companion 's Buttermilk bisquits

    " Perl .... gives average programmers the strength to get up and do what needs to be done."

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum
      I really really agree with you. I'm not a programmer, but perl make me do the things that just real programmer could do.

      I am trying to improve my English skills, if you see a mistake please feel free to reply or /msg me a correction
