This afternoon I was given the URL of an Open Source project that we're thinking of using at work. So I go off and download it.
Doesn't take me long to realise that the code is really nasty in oh so many ways. Even their HTML is so crufty that half the pages don't work on Mozilla.
But then I stop as I realise something.
If you find a random web application that is written in Perl, you will almost certainly find exactly the same thing. Badly designed applications and nasy hacked-together code. The vast majority of Perl code out there is appalling. I've said that before.
