Perl Swearing

In this article, Paul Graham comes up with a really funny description of Perl:

"When I talk about ugly source code, people will of course think of Perl. But the superficial ugliness of Perl is not the sort I mean. Real ugliness is not harsh-looking syntax, but having to build programs out of the wrong concepts. Perl may look like a cartoon character swearing..."

The article is about Python programmers: makes for interesting reading.

p.s SIGGRAPH is finally over. It was overwhelming, fascinating, boring, and LONG; all at the same time. My conference-ending-timer kicked in around Monday, and it has been a long haul since.


  1. For me personally, the GP2 workshop and the course on the GPGPU.
    Demo or Die was a lot of fun though...

  2. Only a moron  would call Perl ugly source code. Nothing else needs to be said!
