Re^3: Why does it seem as though Perl has the only community of friendly, non patronizing or demeaning, programmers? What is with every one else?

I thought a group of Java programmers should be called a "wank", a group of C programmers a "claustrophobe", a collection of COBOL programmers an "anachronism", a collection of C++ programmers an "aloof", and a collection of perl programmers a "cemetery".
  1. Java: a verbocity.
  2. Javascript: an anarchy.
  3. COBOL: a shrinery.
  4. Fortran: a numeracy.
  5. Lisp: a reDEFinery.
  6. C++: a commitee.
  7. C: a memory.
  8. PHP: a nursery.
  9. Haskell: an academy.
  10. Ruby: a rolling-stock.
  11. Perl: a memory.

    11. Perl: a memory.

    ...and, as PerlMonks proves, a shared memory... *scnr*

    perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
      ...and, as PerlMonks proves, a shared memory... *scnr*

      :) (You may have noticed there are two memories: one bad, one good. I'll let you guess which is which :)
