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 ...   ;-)

[Discipulus]: i fear no
[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
