Perl: the Markov chain saw

( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
my experience is more of the kind that java programmers i meet often rant about perl before i've said *one* word about java. they usually laugh about perl not being a real language because blah blah. my opinion about java is that i don't love it like perl but it's not bad at all. i just prefer perl whenever i can because i like it, because development time is shorter and because performance is better (in my experience, that is!).

so my question would be why are a lot of java programmers agressive like that?

often the same people continuously try to convince me to use eclipse and make jokes about vim. can't they just shut up? i don't bug them with vim either if i'm not asked.

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.
