I am never going to tell anyone else on this forum or any other forum to “shut up.” Public forums exist to facilitate public discourse, and since I value extremely the discourse that is held here at PerlMonks, I shall never “respond in kind.”
Now, run along, all of you, and start boning up on the byte-codes of your choice. There is indeed no better teacher than Experience, with the possible exception of Public Humiliation. Get busy turning Perl into Java, if you can. (Or will it be Python?) Build an optimizing compiler for a typeless language without strong typing. Being rude to other people in public places won’t get the job done. Nothing else matters but technical results. Damn the torpedoes. Either you will be Mr. Wright, or Mr. Langley, and very soon enough, only the winds will decide.
