Any self-respecting monastery needs a prayer book. I've seen several references to "Hail Larry" on this site, but never seen the text.
So here's my own contribution, the "Our Larry"1. Say this over a rosary before beginning any big project.
Our Larry, who art in CPAN,
Obfuscated be thy name.
Thy code compile,
Thy refs be blessed,
In eval as it is in -e.
Give us this day our debugger.
And forgive us our syntax errors
As we forgive those who do not use strict and -w.
And lead us not into tainted code,
But deliver us from malloc.
For thine is the laziness,
And the impatience,
And the hubris,
1Fellow Christians, please take this in the spirit it was intended: a joke.
