Recently Dan Brian improved on that with a little bit of natural language processing. Now The Perl Review makes pretty pictures of it all. Based on searches of AltaVista and Google, we found that not a lot of people think PHP or Lisp sucks, a lot think C++ and Java suck, and they put Perl is somewhere in the middle. Does Perl suck more than it use to suck, or has PHP just shot way ahead?"
