in thread Taking advantage of multi-processor architecture

That's really quite a silly thing - since it is an acronym after all . . .

You obviously didn't read the FAQ in question:

But never write "PERL", because perl is not an acronym, + apocryphal folklore and post-facto expansions notwithst +anding.

Besides, to paraphrase Data: One is the language's name, the other is not. If you're not going to be correct then you might as well call it "Throat-Warbler-Mangrove" (although one might tire of typing /usr/bin/Luxury-Yacht -e ... all the time).

Trek and Python (Monty) references; if only I could work in Tolkein for the hat trick . . .

Update: Bah, Corrected link to the TNG quotes page.
