  • You can write ugly and unstructured code in any language. Since Perl is so easy to write in, it makes it easy to write ugly and unstructured code. But on the other hand, it is also easy to write beautiful and structured code in Perl - it just needs more effort on behalf of the programmer.

    Hm. Thinking about it, since Laziness and Impatience are two of the great virtues, maybe this pulls the balance towards ugly and unstructured 'write-only' code (get the job done, and get on). On the other hand, Hubris definitely pulls that balance in the other direction.

    A three-party tug-of-war... no wonder the dispersion in code quality is so great...
