You can vote on the RedHat poll here.

When I voted, Perl was #3!

map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    One has to boggle at the seven (as of this post) people who picked "YAML" (let alone the poll's authors for including it; then again it's used to "script" / configure ansible, k18s, openshift, yadda yadda so I might could see maybe a smidgen of validity to that as a choice).

    The cake is a lie.
    The cake is a lie.
    The cake is a lie.

      If you look at Github actions, they are shell scripts where each command is stored as a list entry in a YAML file. I'm not sure why they didn't go with simple shell scripts, but it seems that about every one of these CI things starts out as "simple YAML file" and evolves into a shell script, except stored in YAML.

        IIRC, storing scripts in an XML document indicating what interpreter to use for each snippet was patented by Microsoft years ago, but YAML might still be free to use ;-)

        map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
      TY I voted also for our fav of course.. I'm also forwarding this to our Ruby team who are constantly telling us to get into the 2000's!

    perl and the Inline C module is my favorite scripting/programming environment. Easy to to setup and use with Linux.

    At time of posting the standings were:

    Perl 917 votes YAML 535 votes Python 285 votes Shell scripting 257 votes C/C++ 72 votes Ruby 31 votes Java 28 votes PHP 25 votes .NET/Mono 10 votes

    Frightening to see YAML in second place!

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

    I love Perl but C is still my first true love. Sorry, not sorry.
