in thread Pearls (not really) of Perl programming

I saw a study cited in Steve MacConnell's Rapid Development where they gave the same task to five teams of programmers, but each team had a different priority: one had to optimize for memory use, other for programming time, other for program size, other for code readability, and the last one for output readability. Every team ranked first or second in the aspect that they were told to optimize. Guess who did worst on code readability? The team that was told to optimize programming time! (And the team the optimized code readability was the worst in terms of programming time.)
