Walk into any "shop" that's been around for a while, and you'll be startled by the number of languages and tools that are in use there ... all at the same time. Perl has been called "the Swiss Army Knife of pragmatic programming" and it earned that reputation. Once you get to know it, you'll be coming back to it time and time again because it does so many jobs so well.

    Perl has been called "the Swiss Army Knife of pragmatic programming" and it earned that reputation.

    Ironically, When search "Swiss Army Knife of pragmatic programming", or "Swiss Army Knife of code" on google, the first result is about python.

      But if you instead search for swiss army chainsaw of programming the first hit is to Perl. Getting the quote correct is a prerequisite for accurate search results.

      Optimising for fewest key strokes only makes sense transmitting to Pluto or beyond

        The person making this 'mistake' has been corrected many times on this very subject, and almost everything else they post. They know exactly what they're doing.
