Usually too lazy to log in, unless forced by "tough beans" anti-spam feature.
Somehow I'm still writing things in Perl despite I've tried to "move on" to:
- C for faster code
- and C++ because it's still portable across PCs and smartphones, but offers saner memory management
- and Fortran because a lot of scientific code is already written in it and free-form 2008 does take away some of the worries about pointers
- R for science (also tried Python for data mining courses, but liked it less)
- Lua for embedding (It's a very sane language. It does things the simple way, and they work. I like it.)
I find Perl invaluable for Mojolicious and Test::More.
