I'm Going to Fork Perl

[ #33233 ]

... and the only change is that I'm renaming hashes to DSLs.

  • ...because I prefer ADT.
    • ... oh yeah, well I'm naming my fork PHERL, which stands for Paulgraham, Haskell, Erlang, Rubyonrailsroolzdoodz, and Lisp.

  • Ruby has symbols for this and you can write 'process "selector", :foo => "@href"' and I started with 'process "selector", \$foo => '@href'' in Perl but ended up with (invisible) hash.
  • But you gotta admit the code there is pretty interesting.
    • Of course! I wrote something similar to automate customer testing five years ago, way before the Railzers started their little Internet DSL fetish social club. It's a good technique. I just hate the sticker being slapped on everything.
