in reply to Perl REALLY stands for:

Pedantic, Eclectic, Rumpled, but Lovable.

Pedantic, because the details do count, but you should know those anyway.

Eclectic, "selecting or choosing from various sources", as in

"Perl shows its origin as an amalgamation of tools, for the purpose of being a more useful tool."

Rumpled, because lots of people have run their fingers through its hair.

Lovable, just because. I think it rubs off on the best of us here.

Altogether, like its creator.
