Nothingmuch,
I completely agree with you, I have often had the same thoughts. Programming has helped me structure my brain and developed my problem solving skills. I have also learned the unreliability of computers and long hours of debugging for mind boggling bugs have given me a healthy amount of paranoia and doublechecking skills.

During my work with C ( ok it was pretty short ) I have never worried about aesthetics, I consider optimization and beauty of code more present in Perl than in other languages. Perl's language-like structure is a big plus when it comes to creative coding. Also, about being limited by certain outlooks ( 2D instead of 7.5D planes ) - working with Perl has given me more freedom than working with other languages because Perl offers less constraints.

Programming most definitely modifies your mind, it is like the effect of the logic of mathematics ( OK, I'm a logic addict I admit it ).

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
