ugh, am i feeding trolls here?

Java for example, has a lot of stupidities that annoy the hell out of anyone who is trying to use it..

look, you're obviously entitled to your opinion, but try not to generalize too much. java and perl are two different beasts, with varying syntax and corresponding idiosyncracies. just because YOU don't dig it, don't presume that "anyone who is trying to use it" finds the syntax to be annoying. sure, there are lots of things about java (and perl) that bug me; i doubt that my pissy "i want to gc NOW" reasoning would hold up to the sun engineers' countless hours of research, experience, and development.

..having "string" as a primitive text string
uh, java doesn't have a primitive string type. there are benefits and costs associated with using String/StringBuffer objects; it's not "stupidity", it's a different programming paradigm.

just because you can "start writing" code in a specific language with fewer keystrokes hardly makes it either "better" or "easyer"(sic). i hardly see how your brevity example has anything to do with OO either way. if you just want to bash java, start a new thread.

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.
