Is it not a great thing to learn more languages, I think yes, at least for myself.

I have used those languages in years, and I never hated one of them, although each has something better than others: (I exclude things like SQL, HTML etc.)

  • BASIC
  • FORTRAN
  • PASCAL
  • PDP-11 (assembler)
  • Z-80 (assembler)
  • C
  • Ada
  • COBOL (that was year 2000)
  • Java
  • Perl
  • C# (just started)

Besides, have the opportunity to compare Perl with other languages, might just make you love Perl more!

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.
