Official: Perl the most hated programming language, say devs

Prosthetic Conscience

No way! Didn't realise el reg runs on Perl. Been on it for years and still use it daily. I hate myself not the language. And no wonder people find it intimidating and quickly send me some example snippet that doesn't even have use strict;.. Yes TIMTOWTDI but if you do the same things the same way across a project that's all right, can solve a system side problem way faster than my PHP colleague (bless him) wether it's to do with a DB or files or network/snmp.

And by the way, looking at ruby loops or ternary operators and such I don't understand why people consider Ruby closer to natural language. I guess haters gonna hate
