It also doesn't help Perl's reputation when you unleash a semicoherent tirade at anybody who suggests that some feature of Perl is less than perfect. I'd log in here more if you people weren't so contentious.

No, Perl isn't perfect, but it's pretty good, and there are a lot of people working to make it better.

    I'll teach you to be coherent, you uncontentious jellyfish!!!

    I said you were right. Maybe third time is the charm. I think pedantic, backwards looking concerns like the one you raised are silly and I said it when you forced it. Nothing is ideal in the entire world. Bitching about $a/$b when that's just how it works and it looks like a defense of the clock-that's-correct-twice-a-day… well, log in next time and you'll be treated with whatever respect, deference, and benefit of the doubt you've earned. AnonymousC^HMonk is no one to me and you can have my absurdity when you pry it out of my cold, de^W^W 88wpm fingers.

    Perl is not pretty good. It's the best high level language there is by far for me. I wouldn't be a professional programmer if it didn't exist despite having an extremely early introduction to computer science for my era and all the tools handed to me at home and in school. I love Perl. I use Perl. I contribute to the CPAN and the projects of others. I publish my useful scripts and write tutorials here and there. I host learning meetings at work. I help Perl seekers wherever I meet them and help my Perl betters with tasks at my level. Keep your "no, you," your ho-there, your faint praise. I'll keep having fun with Perl.

    So you know my account wasn't hijacked, I'll digitally sign -> :P

    How the Vague One leaves conflict and consternation in his meandering wake!


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
