  • Well, I personaly feel lucky that the programming languages I use and my native language have very little in common.

    English is a foreign language, Perl is a foreign language, C is a foreign language, Befunge is an alien language (from outer space)... I never try to "speak" Perl as I speak English. And I never ever translate Perl to French (or the other way around).

    • I second BooK in that I don't try to write Perl code as I would write English. It's only a programming language and not a human language. But I admit I often choose the name of functions and variables so that one can read what they do and what they are. However I didn't even thought of reading the sigils that way. But it might be useful for teaching the difference between $array[1] and @array[1,2,3] to beginners.
