I don't get what you are trying to say? Are you saying that Perl is closer to JavaScript( or Java), than c? Even c is closer to Perl than c++, unless you make a case for the Object Oriented aspects.

I was just listing a few languages that sprung to mind, close to C - possibly closer than Perl. My comment was not meant as contradicting nor supporting your claim, it was simply inspired by it. It was a spin-off: probably not the best place for such a discussion, but it was "in the air" anyway in this thread which is largely OT in and of itself.

Since there are so many experienced programmers here, I'd like to see the list grow, mentioning widely known and less widely known items - possibly with some interesting comparison or meditation referring to Perl. (I could add some entries, like, err, well D, but I'm not that knowledgeable.)

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.
