Ok, I admit it, I use perl incessantly, and I love every second of it, but lets be perfectly honest, there is a right tool for every job. If I'm doing list processing, a LISP variant is probably the right tool. Logical analysis, better look at prolog if I want to get the job done quick. Writing to the processor? Writing an OS? Better look at C and ASM. Lets not forget that Larry Wall and the Porters write perl, and love perl, certainly as much as anyone else around here, and they write it in C. What am I saying??? Right tool, right job... Perl is a GREAT tool, it's the programmer's all purpose chainsaw! I doubt that Quake IV will be written in perl, however.

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.
