The following is satire. I'll accept any downvotes, but I had a lot of fun writing this: Thank you. /me bows

    • PascalMonks: there's a way to do it provided your strings are all 255 characters or less.

    And for other scientific-programming geeks...

    • FORTRAN4Monks: there's a really fast way to do it if you don't need subroutines.
    • FORTRAN77Monks: there's more than one way to do it, but only one way to type it.
    • SPLmonks: there's a proprietary way to do it.
    • JSLmonks: there's more than one way to spell it (but it still won't work in the next version).

    However, I must insist on a modification:

    • C#monks: this is how you will do it today

    • asmMonks: You can do it ... if you can figure out how.
    • JAMMonks: You can't do it in any sane way.
    • SQLMonks: You can do it, but our functions have been renamed.
    • RegexMonks: I can do anything, but you can't read it.
    RegexMonks could also be: I can do anything, but so can my modem.
      RegexMonks: I can do anything...?

      Write a regex that determines if an arbitrary set of parentheses are balanced within a string. :-)


        $re = qr/(?:(?>[^()]*)|\((??{$re})\))+/; print 'I (pity (the (fool) who) dont) know (regexes)' =~ /^$re$/;

    What about ADAMonks?
    There's only one way to do it, but you can vary the amount of people making it happen

    A few more:

    ForthMonks: "to do it" "one way" "more than" "there's"
    VisualBasicMonks: There's more than one way to do it, but if it's not point and click, it's not documented.

    APLMonks: (unprintable)

    4GLMonks: There's a way to do it without any programming!

    There's got to be a good APL joke out there, but I can't think of it. I just wanted to mention APL.

    Need one for INTERCAL, too.

      APLMonks: There's a way to do it, but it's all Greek to me.

    BasicMonks: There is a numerically ordered way to do it.
    PHBMonks: There is only my way to do it.

    Seriously, if you took the Monk off of the better known languages and touched it up, that would make a great geek t-shirt... :)

    May as well throw in on an ancient discussion....

    • PrologMonks: There's more than one way to do it, and we'll backtrack until we find them all.
    • SchemeMonks: Hey, we should be listed at LispMonks. What's that? Hey! Scheme is a Lisp, too! Shut up! Shut up!
    • SmalltalkMonks: The class browser makes doing it really easy.
    • PDLMonks: There's more than one way to do it, but they all take ages to translate to real code, and never get updated.
