in reply to Why I hate Perl (discussion)

I don't see one Java application that doesn't ship with it's own JDK, I don't see why doing the same with Perl wouldn't be benificial to an applications stability, ease of migration, and maintenance.

To resolve issues on development servers here I keep the systems perl separate from the users. I install various Perl flavors beneath /home/perl. (i.e /home/perl/5.6.0/bin/perl, etc)This makes management cleaner for both the sysadmins and the developers. Now that Sun is maintaining it's own Perl distribution (as of 2.8) I don't want to find some patch that plays havoc on the dev enviornments.

Also this argument reminds be of an a coder's complaint I heard recently "The only problem with developing user interfaces is the user".

But ya know Joe, There's more than one way to do it and there's nothing you can do about it :)
