  • My comment here ran a little long so I posted it independently. I am in a position of both loving Perl and actively working to extract it from the company I work at. This is heavily biased by my experience and dismay trying as best I can to fix serious problems at work. http://vocal-chord.blogspot.com/2008/12/perls-trail-of-tears.html [blogspot.com]
    • So I read your post, and apparently it will be unicorns and rainbows, if only sysadmins wrote software beyond their ability in python instead of perl ?

      You stated at the start of your blog entry that the problem was sysadmins doing the jobs of programmers, wouldn't it be better to hire programmers who know perl to do the programming and keep the sysadmins to sysadminning ?

      Python won't enable them to program an iota better than perl, heck they'll probably try and apply perl, shell and c idioms to python and that would be an even worse trainwreck than what you have now!
