an anti-Perl rant
I found an anti-perl rant
that's worth looking at, by using the RSS feed searcher at Feedster
(which is a useful bookmark).
He makes an interesting point. Most of the "tough" tasks are "too easy" in Perl, and the view from the outside is that we simply wouldn't know how to solve things "the hard way" which he seems to think is the only way that will survive the test of maintainability.
He also claims that it's impossible to write code that is large and maintainable. Hmm. That doesn't seem to fit the experience of many of my clients.
