i think perl is a nightmare in all its utterancies 😅
from fix my code ebook


@mara @siusoon what's the joke. Perl is write once, never read?

@reynir perl has a weird (some say even ugly) syntax, many ways to do same thing, and the quote refers to a perl script as a difficult software to maintain. And i think perl is a difficult language to write a program in general, let alone read and update a script written by someone else.
Interesting enough as the book points out, perl was very popular end of 90s, 2000's for server processes, and among hackers and artists.
