Lol! Quite the eloquent writer for a mathematician (not to insinuate that mathematicians can't be writers ;) ), water. I like to think of Perl as being quite different from math. Although a foundation in mathematics such as trig or calc (more algebra than anything, I would think) can help you write better equations and keep your mind sharper, programming (in general) is based upon logic. Math, itself, is logic, but can supersede basic logic and become a language all its own. I, honestly don't mind math, just as long as a problem doesn't end up causing blood to shoot out of my nose! I can't say my favorite weekend activity involves working a quadratic equation and imaginary numbers, but it does help you keep your mind sharp and on-track.
Is it just me, or does anyone else think that code is more beautiful than the result?!!
Sorry for the philosophical rant. Thank you all for taking an interest in my little post, here.
