in reply to Perl for big projects

Just happen to read on perlmonks a posting by a certain CountZero: I don't know who this CountZero is (and I'm not sure if I would like to find out or know what his status in the Perl world is) but clearly it is someone who hasn't been keeping himself updated on what "big" projects are (e.g. Catalyst is tiny) and seemingly hasn't ever written a decent module, program or script. If he is the same CountZero as who has written the imperialdeltronics web Page then I understand why he thinks his Perl scripts are "big", since the few Perl scripts he has on this site are indeed not prime examples of well written Perl, and are instead obfuscated balls of spaghetti code (not to say anything about the graphics!). Whatever language you write in, your task as a programmer is to do the best you can with the tools at hand.
A good programmer can overcome a poor language or a clumsy operating system, but even a great programming environment will not rescue a bad programmer. — Kernighan and Pike
(The C programming language) is a razor-sharp tool, with which one can create an elegant and efficient program or a bloody mess. — Kernighan and Pike
Really it are ungrammatical people like CountZero who negate all efforts to promote Perl by uttering such unproven, unfounded and unconsidered nonsense. If I could post on perlmonks I would tell him myself, but on second thought "Don't feed the trolls".

    At least this Anonymous Monk has taken the effort to look up my website. Shall we ++ him for that?
