in thread Stereotypes about perl

I don't think it equates to sloppy handwriting. If the code was poorly constructed or if it wasn't documented at all, then fine. But the problem here is the professors, not the codes.

Why tell the students that they can use any language they want if he's going to show bias as to which language they choose? The penalty was because the professor didn't understand a langauge that he said the person could use. How can you say someone can use something and then penalize them because of your lack of familiarity with it? If only languages X, Y and Z are going to get a fair shake, why wasn't that conveyed up front?

    Which part of "strongly advised" didn't you understand?


    ;$;=sub{$/};@;=map{my($a,$b)=($_,$;);$;=sub{$a.$b->()}} split//,".rekcah lreP rehtona tsuJ";$\=$;[-1]->();print
      The part that's not mentioned about being penalized. Strongly advised to me means it's advice as to which languages would make it easier. Not which languages will receive a better grade.

      Which part of "The professor said we can use any language we want" do YOU not understand?

        Strongly advised to me means it's advice as to which languages would make it easier. Not which languages will receive a better grade.

        "Strongly advise", coming from a professor, means the same thing as "good for your grade". Sometimes just "advise" means that, even without "strongly". If you keep telling yourself otherwise, you'll be graded down again in the future by other professors.
