I don't know that we are necessarily changing to suit VB. What I am sure of is that at first glance, I couldn't tell what the smalltalk code does, but I could tell what the VB stuff did. Ditto when I first started Perl, I had no idea what the arrow did, even though I knew what the dots were in VB and Delphi.

Changing to suit the whims of the greater programming community is wrong, but standing firm on small issues is inflexible. I like the -> operator, I think it's neat, but I guess it's time for it to go.

And this is Perl. We've been promised a backwards compatibility layer, so your code isn't going to become obselete over night.

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
