- Try to read your own Perl code one year later and
you'll be surprised how *ugly* Perl is.
- Perl is not ObjectOriented. It *looks like* OO.
- You can not provide the bytecode for end-customer
if you would not like to show him the sources.
- Do you like this schizophrenic syntax?:
- Perl is fast (interpreter), but not designed for big applications.
It is good for scripts up to 100 codelines.
In short, at least give the penguin a fair viewing. If you still don't
like it, that's ok: that's why I'm boss. I simply know better than you
