in reply to Politeness (to one another) is a virtue

Sorry sundialsvc4, when we start to limit what words we use, we start to limit what ideas we can express. Not everyone is endowed with a broad vocabulary. Sometimes being eloquent is helpful; other times, there is no substitue for the F-word. I was not offended by the OP language -- but I was saddened by the narrow-mindedness.


PS if that post bothered you, never, ever, ever attend an mst talk :-)

    Agreed. I found the post easy to dismiss—especially without an identity attached. And you were too kind. "Narrow minded" ne "wrong." OO is a fad in the same way women wearing pants is; only to a bigot.

    What narrow mindedness?

      OO is ... a passing fad

[Corion]: 5.14 is also a good target, widely available and fairly stable. Also, over five years old, which doesn't push people into a needless upgrade cycle
[Discipulus]: yes I saw your efforts Corion but the pain is worth?
[Corion]: Discipulus: IMO it's not that much pain, but most of the systems I use have a Perl 5.14 or newer on them nowadays
[marto]: the question is more, is Padre still the way new users should be directed?
[Discipulus]: ah ah I have all 5.26 atm but I play alone..
[Corion]: Except this RHEL box, which comes with Perl 5.10.1 , but there I installed my own 5.20.3 for the real Perl programs we run ;)
[Corion]: marto: I used Padre for some time but then switched to Notepad++, since all the funky features I wanted to put into Padre couldn't be made to work, and/or I lost interest :)
[Discipulus]: indeed marto I dunno. I tested once and many years ago. But I'm not the programmer yardstick. I try to install Padre via cpan now just to add a line about it in the issue. Strawberryperl all life long!
[marto]: yeah, when I worked on Windows I did use Np++ all the time

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
