Well, up to today I always knew of Larry Wall for inventing perl, and saying that Lazyness can become a programmer. Today I read a bit more, and was pretty impressed. He really does have the right ideas on programing languages.
For some reason though, and in spite of it’s many benifits, and my raving friends, I just don’t feel like learning perl. There is something about the syntax that bothers me, and I’ve never taken the trouble to find out what it is. Same thing with Python. Can’t stand either of them, and I know they are great languages.
Now Ruby - Ruby has some real class.
