The road goes ever on and on

    My first attempt at a Perl Poem :)
    Inspired by a movie I just saw and a book I read many times
    original Poem:
    The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say. ---Bilbo Baggins
    And my very humble attempt:
    use EagerFeat; use constant{ OnAndOn =>1, TRUE =>1, }; while ($Road == OnAndOn){ if ($can){ $follow = TRUE; } elsif (join(':', $Road,$larger_way)){ meet($errands, $paths); last; } } $wither_then? cannot():say();

    Long time using big, slow, strongly-typed Java, subject to impenetrable containers - too many bloated layers of software slapped too quickly around Open Source by multinational companies run by too many layers of management, highly paid executives who listen to the day traders that own the stock today, and fire the coders who understand the product, for a more profitable quarter now and pain later, coders who bitterly give up software careers to teach Math or sell flutes. Really. Perl was always my scripting language of choice. Finally...again...those who know answers are encouraged to share them, and lastingly enjoy the results of their labors, and not try to forget. What a difference.

    Boss man doesn't code. Likes to read over shoulders. Can't read Perl... Too dumb. "Perl is ugly, rough, unreadable!" Quoth Boss man: "Do it in Logo." Did it in Logo. Problem not solved, but now Boss finally groks code.

Add your poem
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
