Comment Re: Perl (Score 1) 181

Perl is not a write only language in any way. If you're looking at write only Perl code it was written by a write only programmer.

I found the expressiveness of the Perl language is something that lets me write more code that does exactly what it looks like it does as idioms or phrases. I don't use Perl idioms for compactness. I use them because it makes my intent clear.
