in reply to Experimenting with other programming languages...

The marketing endeavors of language advocates can be argued to be necessary to the growth of the language. Perl has its share, eh?

My suggestion:
Go ahead and learn some Ruby. Take any perceived insults in stride. Then go learn some C. Then Java, shell, C++, PHP, Python, ad infinitum. Soon chest-thumping advocistas start to sound, well, silly.

Even if you never code in another language(but you will), you'll become a much better Perl coder.

    Dappling is fun, but until one realizes that one is utilizing a tool, that is, an instrument of productivity, one tends to be rather subjective.


    The "My * is better than your *" is a rather puerile endeavour based solely upon exposure and experience. I play with C, I play with PHP, and I play with Python... I work with Perl.
