- There is a small sane part of me that hopes I am the only geek who carries on a conversation with the Perl interpreter at 3am...
Shhh tell the *sane* part to go back to sleep! ;)
I have never really put my thoughts of Perl into a framework but I would definately say Perl is something special to me. I generally think of myself as a mediocre coder at best (slowly getting better); However I could never give up because Perl keeps calling me.
I would have to say Perl is definitely female and likened along the lines of a siren, luring me near with a feeling I cannot accurately describe.
The only thing that does not fit into the sirens analogy is the pending doom, of which I can see none -- But neither did anyone ever trapped by a siren's song, no?
