Holy Mother of PERL!!!

I was listening to "Software Engineering Radio" episode 91 with Kevlin Henney talking about C++.

During that episode he made reference to PERL and the phrase "executable line noise".

I ran a web search to see if that phrase had been used before and found THIS.

HOLY MOTHER OF PERL!!!

Any language that ALLOWS you to do THAT, will eventually ENTICE you to do THAT.

And yes, it actually works (I keep Perl installed for just such an emergency (channeling FogHorn LegHorn)).

I don't like Perl.  I DO like Ruby -- it's like Perl with all of the uglies taken out.
