There's more than one way to do things

  • When I program in C, I laugh at those who foolishly squander CPU cycles with their "high level" language constructs.
  • When I program in Fortran, I scoff at those languages who don't handle arrays and parallelism properly.
  • When I program in Perl, I wonder how all those other languages live without regular expressions and CPAN and DWIM.
  • When I program in Lisp, I dismiss anyone who doesn't think macros are like sliced bread.
  • When I program in Scheme, I sneer at anyone who can't write a compiler for their language of choice.
  • When I program in Haskell, I wonder how anyone could think static typing was anything other than the "Right Thing "
...and yet I somehow manage to use each of those languages in one way or another. Go figure.

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
