in reply to What programming language do you hate the most?

Ah!, there are also other programming languages, beside Perl? I perceived rumors about this, but I always supposed to be just rumors..

Anyway I hate no language, I simply and happily ignore them cause I know a bit of Perl and and I'm happy with it.

I have adversion against bad implementations, against programs with bugs, against clutterly designed web interfaces, against developpers who say: "this is a black box for me; this is a library limit i cannot do anything; you have reason but just in a perfect world.."

I have no simpathy for PHP because it stolen Perl the web primate, but if you see it from left probably because of PHP and Ruby now we have PSGI, plack, mojolicious, dancer and company.

Perl is so good that there is no space for hate.

Hate is a sentiment worth to be proved against few other things, for sure no programming languages.

    Because you don't know any other, according to your own admission.

    If you knew any other, maybe you would hate Perl. ;-) Or maybe you would hate the other ones that you know.

    OK, I don't like too much the word "hate" here, I would have preferred "dislike". But once we get past this terminology issue, I can tell you that there are a few languages that I really dislike, because I have had to use them. Only a handful of them, among that three dozens or so languages which I have used over the last 35 years or so. Each language has its own warts, fine, I can live with that, but some are really irritating. Try brainfuck if you don't believe me.
