( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Sorry to disappoint you, but I am dealing with several projects, consisting of several million lines of source-code in aggregate, which are in revenue-earning production right now.   The clients in question are not the slightest bit interested in rewriting them from scratch to deal with your “Commandments,” which would be a multi-million dollar capital expense with no return on investment.   (They prefer for the systems in question to continue to earn millions, and/or to continue to reliably support business processes that right-now do so.   Perl-5, in this case quite literally, “moves the freight.”)

Please don’t continue to bother to trumpet the supposed virtues of an improvement that no one in the business world can ever afford/choose to make.   Computer software technology does not exist in a vacuum; does not sit on a high mountain and chant, waiting for enlightened pilgrims to come to it.

Please find a way to provide, instead, even a 5% improvement (let’s start small and work up ...) on some key aspect of what Perl-5 does right now ... to be done in such a way that no source-code changes are mandated, and that the full backward-compatibility of all key modules (DBI, Template, JSON, to name a few) can be objectively proved in-advance.

You find yourself “a voice in the wilderness” because the business-risk of what you propose is incalculable while the return-on-investment is essentially zero.   Yet, you continue to talk very loudly.   Why not focus instead on some perhaps very-small but well-chose aspect of what the customer actually wants, and find a pragmatic way to do even that small thing?   This is what will put your name in lights.
