in reply to My most common answer to a question about Perl is:

... because I can have a working solution in Perl in one tenth the development time, using one tenth the lines of code than in (C/C++/Java/Clean/Pure/...).

And if it runs too slowly, I have the other 90% of the time to speed up the slow bits.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?
