Official: Perl the most hated programming language, say devs


Poor old Perl, getting blamed for the format of the input data clashing with it's regex syntax.

The author could've made that more readable though, Perl does tolerate fools a little too gladly.

I'm not sure how pretty C# would look doing all those regex's either, the end result would likely be quite a lot longer.
