in reply to RFC: How Tightly Coupled To Perl Must We Be?

Your post, if I may say, is quite rambling ... to the point where I’m really not sure what your point is ... but I simply think that the purpose of PerlMonks is to help people “get s**t done with Perl.”   There is something that needs to be done (yesterday), and something about Perl is standing in the way, and PM ought to be “the go-to site on the Internet” for quick and knowledgeable help, more-or-less politely given, to make that stumbling-block go bye-bye.   That’s the mission-statement.

“How tightly coupled to Perl?”   To me, Perl is like an Einstein Bros. bagel:   it’s the whole schmeer.   The entire toolbox and all the tools that are in it.   Nothing in particular is in- vs. out-of-scope for a reasonably answerable and relevant question.   Whatever it is that you are banging your head against:   “been there, hit that, so maybe we can help avoid further damage to your forehead.”

[Corion]: ambrus: Well, for mathematical notation, I find blackboard much more convenient than a computer. But when inserting text or moving text around, the computer wins obviously
[ambrus]: But either of these is a big problem in practice, so I'd need to spend like thirty years of my life to solve (a) and five more years to solve (b)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, CURRENTLY the blackboard is more convenient
[ambrus]: and it's not like I want to ban blackboards anyway
[ambrus]: you already have blackboards and a canvas for projector or overhead transparencies (or positive film slide projector, not used for maths) canvas in the same lecture halls today, and switch in a few minutes between presentations,
[ambrus]: they're only difficult to use together.
[ambrus]: overhead transparencies are a nice convenience by the way that mix the two slides, because you can write them in advance and edit them during the presentation easily. but they're not very much in fasion these days.
[ambrus]: you can even print them.
[Discipulus]: ambrus i'm trying out MremoteNG which wrap putty and rdp and many other things..
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally you would have the ease of overhead projection transparencies and pens drawing on them, combined with the computer generated slide text...
