Indeed. And that thought crossed my mind as I was writing my reply. However much the same is true of most other languages, and certinally is true of the popular languages. It is still the case however that if you need to write large amounts of code there is a win by using languages that cut down your freedom of expression through strict type checking and other such constrains as a price for better management of large projects.

Unless you have been involved with a really large project that is large because it has to be (not because it is poorly written or poorly designed), it is hard to imagine the sorts of problems that arise and even harder to know how to manage them.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
