in reply to Why I hate Perl (discussion)

I love Perl. I am not a sysadmin. I am a handyman. I just happen to know computer programming, and it's been my hobby since age 12. I also repair computers and maintain a handful of websites. I consider myself an advanced Windows user, but I want to transition to Linux in the future. I learned Perl, because it is like a Swiss army knife. Learning this single language not only allows me to write server-side scripts, but it also allows me to write scripts for Linux (and Windows of course. I currently use TinyPerl 5.8 on Windows.)

It seems to me that your problem is not really with perl but with people which includes yourself. First of all, you point the finger at everybody else except you. That's problem #1. Secondly, you dislike the fact that everybody is different, which is perfectly natural if you live in a free country. If you live in a Communist country, everybody is the same, and nobody is allowed to be different. If you're in a company and it happens to have a toxic work environment, then please don't take out your anger on perl programmers, because that's exactly what your post sounded like. You need to take a break, or if it doesn't help, then perhaps get another job.

    Replying to a 20 year old post from a Solaris admin (<snark>who are notorious for inflicting pain on users</snark>) is at best ill advised. Support groups exist for those who still have to work under Solaris. For the admins, there is no help. Regarding the long dead 'TinyPerl', the responses from chromatic in this thread should be of interest to you.
