No disagreement there. More is always better. Especially when it makes you think about problems in a different way given the strengths or constraints of the language.Originally Posted by BenjaminS
As far as Perl being cryptic, how much it suffers from it is dependant on the author as well as the language. You can easily write Perl to be comprehendable to a C programmer for example. Though to be fair, I remember the first time I picked up a Perl book. I was thinking "WTF is with all this punctuation BS??!". I quickly put the book down and didn't look at it for months. Though once you "get it", most of it makes perfect sense.
