in thread The Limitations of the CPAN

The anonymous monk made most of my points for me, but I wanted to clear up one thing: I do not favor Java. Java has some good points but it is certainly not my first choice of programming language. For a given problem that both are suited for, a skilled programmers will still get more done in Perl than in Java.

Cheers,

    A skilled programmer ... huh. Either we're speaking about skilled programmers or we're not. If we are, then Perl is a perfectly good enterprise-level language. If we're not, then Java is the better language all around. Which is it?

    Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
    Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
    Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
    Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
