Well, to be honest... yes, there are some pretty significant problems with Perl. Here are the two major ways Perl has caused me strife:
- The first major problem is that when I started using Perl, I no longer had the drive to play video games. Perl was too much fun and my World of Warcraft gear suffered terribly. As a result, my guild mates stopped asking me to raid dungeons with them. I felt really left out.
- The other problem is that now I have too much time on my hands. Perl has made it so that I finish all my work too quickly. As a result, I'm getting more done at work, but it looks like I'm doing less since I just sit around watching YouTube videos (that I download using Perl) while my scripts run. Also, I now no longer have an excuse to get out of social engagements since I never have any work that I need to bring home in the evenings or on the weekends.
So, my advice? Keep away from Perl, because once you start... you won't be able to stop.
