    Think yourself lucky you're writing Perl;

    It could be so much worse.

    You could be writing Java,

    My god what a palaver.

    (And that's the end of my verse!:)

      Writing Perl, think yourself lucky
      It could be so much worse
      writing in Java, yuckie
      encoded in morse

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    That ain't called working, where I come from ...... ;-)

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

      Actually I agree with you but it was the only rhyme I could think of. Poetic licence OK?
        Sorry, I didn't mean for my reply to be critical at all. I was just pointing it out to the less observent. I actually like it.

        The subliminal messages sent thru word phrasing, is the essence of poetry.

    In the bleak solstice Perl lets mind roam usefully Mind meets code, complete.
