"Efficiency is a very relative term. Efficient compared to what? Runtime? Compiling? Deploying? Developing?"

Fair enough. Let me try to better articulate my intent, regarding that statment.

I meant with regard to actual deployment. As one simple example; I wouldn't use Perl to write something best suited for Client side JavaScript. Would you? ;-)
But as you later stated; it really is fantastic for prototyping, and can indeed solve most real-world problems -- makes for a good problem solver; as I originally mentioned. ;-)

"Also, I assure you that you will make more money if you get hired doing Perl, than you will in almost any other language at this time (that said, you've got to be damned good and experienced)."

Ahem... Didn't I pretty much say just that, in my reply? ;-)

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.
