I feel a little sorry for Perl, but not that much.
Interesting, but popular isn’t the same as fit for purpose. I’d love to know what the code is for.
All those precious little icons! If I was one of the digerati, I would know what they all represent! (I would also not use the word digerati.)
It’s the second to last one that get’s me. What is that, a beaker? Otherwise:
Real programmers flip dipswitches with a toothpick held between their teeth.
The flask is something called Puppet according to this:
The author of that article echoes my sentiment of “Pup-huh?”.
Where’s the source link?
Dipswitches? Where I come from we have to wire-wrap our programs!
Is NodeJs slower than Perl, or some compiled language? who cares – without have to switch my brain’s context around multiple times in a session, and on a modern processor, I save time. Heck, I could probably use LOGO on a modern processer and save time.
Yeah, but it’s popular the way Becky is popular. Nobody actually likes her.
According to The Simpsons, FORTRAN is “the greatest of the programming languages”.
A configuration management tool, evidently. (It was news to me too.)
Considering that it was the first programming language and still sees a fair bit use in the scientific community, The Simpsons may be right. (That might mean that COBOL is a close second, though, which is a scary thought…)
Why feel sorry for Perl just because it’s not well represented on a graph about GitHub usage?
