  • What does not knowing Perl when he wrote the program have to do with naming variables badly or using globals all over the place? I mean, those are things I'd expect a good programmer to avoid in any language. (Especially the variable naming, which doesn't even require knowledge of 'my' or 'local'.)

    • You're right, of course. It's two things at work:

      a) not knowing Perl

      b) not caring about good practice in programming since programming is seen only as an annoying means to an end.
