( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Even today, CPAN is a buzz word Perl programmers waging quite often, when it is highly questionable whether a centralized code repository really provides much unreplacable benefit. Java doesn't have CPAN, but Java has google. C# doesn't have CPAN, but c# has google. You can easily find everything just googling or yahooing.

I might have given you the benefit of the doubt until this comment. Its quite clear that you havent the foggiest idea about what you speak. Google is so far from a replacement for CPAN that it isn't funny. Every time I've had to search for useful free code for any other language I've come away thanking the powers that be that I use Perl and have CPAN to back me up. While not everything on CPAN is quality software, lots of it is. The same can't be said of Java's or C#'s collections available from Google.

You keep trolling this site bashing Perl and apparently promoting Java. Its not clear why. Perhaps Larry Wall didnt talk to you at a convention, perhaps you are just an attention seeker, perhaps you are a shill for Sun or Microsoft. Whatever. Most people here don't care, and would rather you just wander off back to where you came from.

If you have anything constructive or useful to add to the site other than regularly repeating "perl is dead" then please do so. Otherwise just bug off.
