in thread Perl myths ?

Don't be malicious seems the simplest answer :-)

Ahh :) the simple answer.

I guess it comes down to looking at the emotional response vs. the rational one. It's hard for people to do so before responding to criticism or making criticism. I think it's a failing that most people have.

http://www.theperlreview.com/Issues/v0i7.shtml

was mentioned either on this thread or on one about perl stereotypes (i can't remember :P ) ... it's that kind of technical clarity that makes the discussion easier/more palatable.

Also remember that language choice isn't just one of "technical" merit. There are many, in a narrow sense of the word, non-technical issues in picking a language.

I agree heartily. If you don't like it, you won't learn it well and won't perform well. Same goes for availability and support.

I think that about covers it.


thanks,

willy

[Eily]: sorry, got interrupted
[Eily]: so he left from Nancy
[Eily]: and my point was, he met some monks yesterday in Italy who offered him a place for the night
[Eily]: and since he was meating eatalian monks I wondered if I should tell him to say hi to Discipulus for me :D
[erix]: Nancy-Bari: 1320 km ... He'll need some time :)
[LanX]: he was "meating" Italian monks oO?
[erix]: then again, there are people who do 10 full triathlons on 10 consecutive days, so it must be doable
choroba's friend has done the Pacific Crest Trail, it's 4200 km
