( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

This has turned into Willy Lohman crossed with &ldquo:I coulda been a contendah.”   Or, seeing George Forman selling pots and pans.   The race was run years ago, and you never finished.   Since then, the race-track has been torn up and they’ve put up a parking lot.   Even so, the carcass flops around on the pavement, boasting of 40x speed differences between one execution-language and another ... a metric which unfortunately points very clearly to the presence of irreconcilable design flaws if anyone had reason to care about them any more, which they do not.

It doesn’t take any special credentials at all to set out to create a programming language:   people do it in high school these days, and they have one semester in which to do it.   But that is not where “the bar” is here.   “The bar” is, for example, a web-site with 3 million users and a development budget of $200,000 (USD) per month.   Or, a key transaction-processing system for a retail supplier that handles 50,000 transactions a minute 24/7.   Perl-5 does that now.   The technical requirements for anything that presumes to call itself Perl-5++ are hard, and high.   This project did not win.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
