in reply to poll ideas quest 2009
My co-workers refuse to learn or use Perl because ...
- Some people like to type the same sequence of keys until they have Carpal Tunnel.
- That Java code almost writes itself!
- The IDE does all that work anyway.
- No time to pick up a new skill, even if it saves time.
- Can't read regular expressions.
- Don't believe in all that "natural language" stuff.
- On the list of things to do someday.
- Don't write scripts, just create macros.
