Official: Perl the most hated programming language, say devs

A puzzled fan...

I love Perl - for certain jobs, namely mine, it's a god-send. And I never get the complaint about perl + regular expressions. That's what regular expressions look like - anything with regex support is going to look the same.

As for too many ways to do things - sure, you can write cryptic code, and head off down obscure structures, but then you're just an arse.
