Oh, I agree: Perl is a tool, much as a brush and paints are the tools in art class. I'm just trying to point out that you can have more than one approach to painting or programming, and that the lesson of additive vs. subtractive methodologies applies equally well to programming as it does to art.

I am not trying to evangelize, either; if you're reading this it's because you're here at PerlMonks, not What-Language-Should-I-Use-Monks. And I figured that since this wasn't code, I could safely post it in Meditations instead of Snippets or Craft.

As for the link you posted, well, I'm sorry that you think this is all just mindless blathering about how great Perl is. Perhaps you could read it again and tell me in which parts specifically you think I am being a Perl zealot like the other poster was. ;-)
