    I prefer Perl 1. It's like comparing New Coke and Original Coke. The new recipe wasn't popular, and they had to go back to the old version. Maybe that's what the Perl community should be doing.


      What do you find appealing about Perl 1?
        Perl 1 is the original. The first is always the best. Example: the Men of Middle Earth aren't thought very highly of, unless they are directly descended from the originals, the Neumenor's. All peoples of Middle Earth think that the first Kings were the greatest of all Men. In much the same way, the farther we get from Perl 1, the more diluted the language becomes, and we all know that dilution is bad. That is the basis for my objection to Perl 6.

[Corion]: Oooh - I had another devious idea - "Host C" - a C language where every struct is 4K in size. This makes memory and disk access incredibly fast ;)
[Corion]: (because everything is aligned to a memory page and all pages can be read+written directly from disk without buffering)
