in reply to Confessional

Forgive me father Larry for I have sinned many times in the past month and greivous is the burden.

  • I did fail in my promise to log into perlmonks once a day. Indeed I have only logged in three times in the past month.
  • I did knowingly downvote a post because I didn't like the poster's name.
  • I did write today in my Matlab exam some of the most heinous cruft ever to have graced paper. I only thank Larry that it will hopefully never get near a networked computer and risk escaping into the wide beyond. It would have worked though. In this sin is included the crime of cargo-cult code, direct translation from perl to matlab where possible and not using matlab's nice functions instead.

  • I have not booted up my laptop or programmed Perl in over a month.
In my defence I can only say that I've been busy having exams, shooting competitions and that most distracting of posessions Elgon ducks a girlfriend. I also wrote on my exam paper that the last question (basically a regexp exercise in a language without regexps) that it could be solved with a Perl one liner as opposed to about ten lines of matlab and then proceeded to play Perl golf, albeit badly, with the possibilities.

    Isn't it ironic to sin while using Matlab?
