in reply to My favorite crew member from the original Star Trek:

Well I can understand why Scotty seems so trendy here. However my vote is for Bones McCoy all the way: too funny with his continuous fights with Mr. Spock! And just not to boldly forget: he's dead Jim!

BTW: ++ for the poll, I was hoping for more Star Trek stuff @ PM. I had begun with some random Klingon programming tips:

I think it's clear enough it's only because of cutural circumstances: most programming languages were born in English speaking countries. I bet Klingon ones are strongly imperative! Klingon geeks despise event driven petaQ: they drive events, not the other way round. And their programs don't have loops. They aim straight to the heart: they often kill and rarely die, but when they do, it's with honour.

Now, I wonder if anyone has ever seen the full Klingon Perl programmer code! (As in "law", not as in "stuff programmers write".)

      (Although an entry in the list at the link you pointed me to explicitly ruled out debugging at all.)

    I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

      That is gonna end up in my .sig's!

    This makes me wonder what a Klingon distribution of Perl would look like. First, it would probably be called something like Battle Perl.

    • Certainly functions like exec, chop, chomp, kill, split would take on new definitions.
    • Some functions would probably be renamed, ie seek would become hunt
    • Others such as sleep may disappear altogether

    As for die it could only have two possible arguments:

    die ('without honor'); # exits quietly after deleting its own source code die ('with honor'); # forcibly terminates process after wreaking havoc with OS and hardwar +e
