Re: Why does it seem as though Perl has the only community of friendly, non patronizing or demeaning, programmers? What is with every one else?

Yeah, great language, even greater community but alas a dying breed it seems.

Your friendliness and 50 cents may buy you some candy, but that's it I am afraid...

    Some years ago, there was this infamous video where a Python and a Perl guy where supposed to battle over interview questions at some conference (OSCON?).

    The Perl guy was almost shy while the Python guy aggressively pushed his arguments forward.

    The most memorable part for me was when the Python guy suddenly calmed down and thanked the Perl community for organising the first Python conference ever for them ...
