    The next time someone accuses Perl of being like APL (e.g. cryptic, unreadable and write-only), why not cite [perl.org] the defense that APL programmers use:

    APL is Unreadable
    “You know what, Russian is unreadable, I don’t know Russian, so it’s unreadable. If you don’t know it, it’s unreadable.”

    APL is Unmaintainable
    Because APL is unreadable, it’s a write-only language, hence is unmaintainable.
