i in no way meant to insult anyone.
If you want no explanation for what i said, stop reading.
When i was talking about use strict not working well under the
situations, i was designing a natural language processor that
took user input strings and, well, processed them. The system
was a learning system, which meant it had to be able to rewrite
its own code as well. NO other language but perl can do
anything like this that i've seen. (i don't count lisp because
it has other problems)
The setup i was going for used nouns, verbs, and modifiers. A
noun and verb are easy to set up and use. The modifiers were
a royal pain. They could modify things in every which way
and they had to stay organized and play nice. When i was taking
a generic user string, and putting it through all these inane
processes to find out what that string 'meant', i looked
and looked for better ways to do things. Given the complexity
of the modifiers, there seemed that other solutions had other
problems with them. The set of problems inherent in the design
i chose were the problems. The problem had nothing to do with perl
being able to or not being able to do something. So to stop this long story,
i got out of some of the problems i had by not using strict
and using loopholes that strict would have caught, then patched up the
loopholes as best as i could.
It's not a good solution, i know this. i'm sorry i ever said what i did,
but i can't take it back (time is only one way unfortunately).
As for your other suggestions on my getting a low rating, merlyn
is a saint, insulting him just doesn't work. He does perl better
in every way, every day more than i could do in my whole life.
vroom has made an excellent web site. It's a shrine for me.
i'm not going to even go into the headaches of suggesting another
language other than perl. Java blows goats. There is no web language
better than perl, only a fool would say otherwise, only an idiot
would believe otherwise. i'll admit i'm stupid, but i'm no fool or idiot
You don't have to worry about lives being threatened, i'm suicidal, not
homicidal. And as for no one helping me here. This is a learning
experience: what not to say on perlmonks
. i have failed with flying colors (yet again). My best bet is to let this
be my last post. Maybe than i can test the limits of low posts
with this one that offends so much.
So, yet again, i'm sorry. Maybe i should explain more, but most likely
i should just talk less (and anyone who read through all this garbage can agree
with that =)
PS Please tell me if yet again i said the wrong thing. Until i learn how to
speak in a monk-friendly way i'll probably annoy a lot of people
on accident. i wish i didn't. i can't help being who i am, and i can only change
when i've learned what to change into. And yes, ghost is an option.
