( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have been writing C code lately for my two graduate courses and the one thing i can say with certainty is that C code in general takes more time to write and test than Perl code that solves the same task (on average). When i sit back and look at C code that i wrote, i get a feeling of relief as well, but is more a feeling of relief that stems from running the Boston Marathon. (Hehe, if you like that, imagine how much satisfaction you could get from writing assembly code!)

Personally, i really get more satisfaction from the fact that i wrote a client/server pair tonight in Perl in the time that it took my fellow students to write 1/10 of that in C. Now, did i learn as much as they did? No. But that's ok. I still have plenty of time to port my programs over to C. The point is that you shouldn't blame a car for getting you from point A to point Z in the time it would take for you to walk to point B, you should be thankful for having a car and a take a nice stroll when you need more satisfaction.

When I'm drivin' in my car
and that man comes on the radio
and he's tellin' me more and more
about some useless information
supposed to fire my imagination.
I can't get no, oh no no no.
Hey hey hey, that's what I say.
