in reply to I think Perl ruined me as a programmer

I first picked up Perl in 1994. I like to say that its the last language I ever learned. Since then I have had to code in other languages -- but instead of writing that code directly, I write a Perl program to generate the code. Very few languages I have to use (SQL, Cognos "languages" i.e. DecisionStream) cannot be more easily written in Perl than with the "visual" tools.

Here's to the beauty of dynamic, interpreted, text based languages. Just count your blessings that Visual Basic has a text source to edit. You could be stuck with a GUI and no place to go...
