I'm speculating, but maybe there's a communication problem here.

Indeed there's been a communication problem, due to my wanna-be-witty concise expression. Thus it's definitely been my "fault". OTOH I understood perfectly well what zentara meant.

Perhaps zentara meant that C is the language that is closest to Perl, rather than the other way around?

Indeed zentara wrote (clearly enough) and (thus) meant that "Perl is closer to C, than any other language he has seen". In the original context this was just to say that it is very C-like as opposed to DOS batch programming, which is very C-unlike. Incidentally, I wholeheartedly agree. My followup, of course, had nothing to do with that context, which is also the reason why I changed the Subject.

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.
