Have you actually looked at what Semi::Semicolons does? Do you really want that?

Perl is what it is. What you pay in sigils you more than make up in language flexibility, reliability and conciseness. For most coding tasks Perl ends up being more concise than most other popular general purpose languages so if it is saving keystrokes you are interested in, Perl generally comes out the winner in the long haul.

That said, saving keystrokes is almost never a productive use of time. Much better to learn the strengths of whatever language you are using and play to those strengths rather than try to bend a language to fit whatever your prior experience might be. A strength of Perl is that it can accommodate most programming styles and provides very powerful data management with easy to understand fundamental data types.

Optimising for fewest key strokes only makes sense transmitting to Pluto or beyond

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
