in reply to The Personalities of Perl Monks - Part I

Type L - Lazy bum who indulges in the fantasy that knowing a few and scattered Perl tricks makes him a more worthy person. Has the impertinence to post and give advice to others, and even takes offence! Logs here every day and judges, votes, weights, considers, has "expert" opinions. What an impostor!

  • Likes: to hitchhike on others' wisdom
  • Dislikes: doing homework
  • Fears: being confronted with his own meager self

    hep! where do the hereticals fit in? Where the fallen? Where the vandals?



    The very nature of Perl to be like natural language--inconsistant and full of dwim and special cases--makes it impossible to know it all without simply memorizing the documentation (which is not complete or totally correct anyway).
