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

I too assumed that English is not the OP's native language.

Given the only link provided in the borderline incomprehensible post was Hacker News: Why is Perl so dwarfed in data science by Python?, I assumed the OP either worked in the Scientific or Computing field, or both, or was at least a keen amateur.

Here's the riddle though. English has become the dominant language in both Science and Computing nowadays. So much so, that I can't imagine a present-day professional scientist or software engineer surviving without a decent command of English -- interested to hear from LanX or other European monks on this topic BTW.

Moreover, I was recently able to wind up both Karl and LanX in German -- despite being perhaps the worst German speaker in the world -- simply by using an online English to German translator.

So I don't have a lot of sympathy for the appalling quality of the OP's post and am at a loss as to how it might be plausibly explained. Sadly, it's looking increasingly likely we'll never hear from him/her again. :(

Update: I further noticed the OP claimed to have "read then concluded from" the long Hacker News thread cited above (which is all in English). BTW, I'm old enough to have been flabbergasted by the rapid rise of English as a lingua franca during the past fifty years -- completely different to when I was a boy! :)

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.
