  • So is this because Perl developers write more documentation?

    Or because Perl is so much more efficient that the actual code just aren't that many lines of code for the same functionality?
    • I think little bit of both. Certainly having a built-in, embedded documentation language helps a lot. Plus CPAN means every project has the same potential to be seen, patched and critiqued allowing best practices to quickly disseminate.
    • Or is it that POD is slightly (not a lot, but still) more verbose than just comments, with all the blank lines?

      (Or are they not counted?)
      • Their metrics are screwy, but it appears that currently POD is counted as Perl if it's in a .pm file. Blank lines are counted as blank lines.
