Eric again. Though it is true that I'm not a big fan of Perl, I've also got nothing against it. Like everyone else, I'll joke occasionally about Perl (Perl: it's great because its got built-in obfuscation! Perl: it's the only language with the same information density as line noise!) but hey, if you guys find it floats your boats, more power to you.

What I'm confused about is the "good reasons" part. I don't _think_ I've ever written anything about perl that had any kind of reasoning in it. Cheap shots, like the above, yes. Reasoning, no. I'm just wondering what you're referring to.

    What was unintentionally omitted in an edit was ", with good reasons I suppose." (belatedly edited to reflect that) There are a lot of reasons to dislike Perl (and I agree with a lot of them!) and since you seem to be a fairly clueful language guy, I assume that you'd have at least taken a glimpse at Perl at one point.
