One thing I do miss about Java is the threading model... if Perl's threads were better, it would make some of my programming tasks easier. (fork and shared memory don't really cut it, and named pipes or local sockets aren't as nice).

Another thing easier about Java is that most people have some sort of JVM installed, at least in their web browsers. Yes, there are a lot of differences between the three major variants, but if someone has a modern version of Windows installed, they have Java.

GUI programming... it's a wash, either way. Perl's nicer in some ways, depending on your widget set, while Java has more widgets built in.

I'm a whole lot more productive in Perl, though, and I'm a better programmer for learning it. If you have the time to learn both, you'll benefit.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
