Well, my question here is too fold. One is silly, the other is serious. Is it wrong to have wanted to learn PERL, learn PHP instead, learn PERL and love it more than PHP?
Secondly, I recently had a conversation in a dreaded VB class. The instructor was praising how VB programmers didn't need to worry about the memory they take up with their programs, basing his opinion on the amount of memory modern desktop systems have. Am I wrong to disagree with the instructor and feel that the more memory a program requires, the slower it is likely to run? Maybe I'm still thinking a little bit about C/C++ and old computers but wouldn't memory usage directly relate to speed?
Please keep in mind, I'm still new to actually using a programming language rather than an HTML embedded language.
