Official: Perl the most hated programming language, say devs

Jonathan 27 Bronze badge

I hate Perl because the syntax is so strange and non-standard, even inside of Perl. It's not a big issue because since I've been working I have never encountered any Perl at all. I don't think many people use it anymore. I'm also not a big fan or Python, or more realistically the concept of using white-space to denote code blocks. That just feels wrong to me.

I do admit that Javascript has it's problems, but you can work around them. So I don't hate Javascript, although something I do hate is "other people's Javascript", because there is nothing worse than that!
