Official: Perl the most hated programming language, say devs

John Styles

The thing I'm surprised no-one else has mentioned (or if they have I've missed it) is the distinction between Perl 4 and Perl 5 (to say nothing of Perl 6).

Where it all went wrong with the objects. What is the phrase from the Perl 5 camel book? 'An object is a reference to a blessed thingy?' Something like that.

When you find yourself writing something like this it is time to have a long hard look at your life choices.
