in reply to Should I give up Perl?

“Wouldn’t it just be oh so nice if ...” in any actual, real-world I.T. shop, we could merely concern ourselves with just one “programming language in mission-critical service?”   Yeah, that would be a splendiferous simplification.

PHP’s design is unquestionably deliberate:   it is a “kitchen-sink” language, with a very large number of built-in features that are, and that can only be, included into the system when the php executable is maked.   It’s not such an awful language, really ...   it just that, having to deal with it on-the-job for even a little while has certain side-effects ...   ;-)
