in reply to Teach him a lesson with facts

Why nobody came out write up three pieces of code, one in Perl, one on c, one in Java and show him how wrong he is? Why?


  • You don't feed the trolls.
  • Small benchmarks are pointless, unless you have to deal with a specific micro-optimisation (which is rare).
  • You don't feed the trolls.
  • Raw speed is not the only way you judge the utility of a language. The vast majority of the time it's not that important. Issues of maintainability, development speed, reliability, robustness, etc. are usually more important.
  • You don't feed the trolls :-)

(Personally, I disagree with your other comment on an individual monk - but PM is certainly not the place to raise these issues.)

People - please remember the first, third and fifth point above (and note how well points two and four were addressed :-)

    A troll is a troll, just becasue you think he is a troll.

    Call him troll 1000000000000000000000 times does not make your arguement more powerful.

    I am not surprised to see more people here are on the side you stand, as this is a Perl site. However man power does not prove you are right. 1 person say 1 = 1, and another 100000000000000 persons say 1 <> 2. So what?

    use logic, don't use strong wording, ;-) My advice is free.
      1 person say 1 = 1, and another 100000000000000 persons say 1 <> 2. So what?

      I guess all of them are right, since 1=1 and 1<>2 are both true. Or was it a trick question?
