Re^5: Perl Vs Ruby - Benchmark?

    Language benchmarks are in general irrelevant and stupid. If you insist try this link for some more.
    Ruby has a dynamic type system, you can add methods to an object on the fly.This makes it slow, but this is also why it has Rails.
    What's the point of the benchmark again?
      Well the point is your making statements without any sources. When other people provide sources and politely ask for yours, your getting strange.

      May I ask how old you are?

        r yours your getting ... don't know any english word for it ... kind of "malaka"!
        I didn't say anything to offend you. I just said that the whole benchmarking thing is stupid. I think you will agree if you consider the car analogue. It has no value to say that the Ferrari F1 is faster than my car, but I'd never buy one cuz it is too expensive and I can't use it on normal road. It is also wrong to say that a language is slow when in fact the implementation of the language is slow.

        Anyway, I still gave you some links that have much more benchmarks of many languages. Although your comment was funny, it is still highly offensive to call a greek you don't know 'malakas'. To answer your question I am 26 years old and I am really sorry that you took personally the comment on the benchmarking thing. I am not here to insult people or be insulted so I hope this is over.
