Hear Hear!!!

After a brief early stint with Perl I ran off and became a
C hacker. Now I can say I'm absolutely religious
about Perl, but would not have fully appreciated it if it
weren't for my other language experiences.

Now knowing Perl, C, Java, and a bit of some others like
Python, I have settled into using Perl when it makes
sense (i.e., most cases) In some cases C is
the most efficient or faster to code in (Yes, but depends
on the problem...) orsometimes Java, etc.

I think to be a really dynamic coder it's important to at
least become familiar with the general structure/syntax
of other languages so you know they may
(unfortunately) be better than Perl for the given

My daily prayer is usually
something like this "May the day's tasks best be
handled by Perl, and save me from the abyss of C
and any Java* not served in a cup.

But then again, maybe I'm a little nuts.

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.
