Has anyone read Chip Salzenberg's super article in TPJ on the Perl debugger where he prefaces sections from the article with with quotes from the Aliens movie? e.g.
STEP ONE: ENLIST
"... every meal a banquet, every formation a parade!" -
STEP TWO: KNOW YOUR WEAPONS
"I'd like to introduce you to a personal friend of mine."
- CPL. HICKS
This article wins my vote as the most enjoyable hairy technical article ever. Even if you didn't know perl, you'd still enjoy it. The guys enthusiasm, mastery of perl, and clear exposition really gleams... great stuff!!
