Quotes: Perl
« on: 2007-11-03 13:12:07 »
"Store this in your memory"

"A Java compiler would say WHAT?! Singular what? Singular string? Stringular number?"

"Java was developed by really serious peolple who worked for a real company. Perl was developed by hackers who just threw in lots of different things."

Monologue about console command "finger":
"So who are you fingering? If you're fingering yourself... ...everything you want people to see of you if they finger you is in .plan..."

Kilian: "What actually happens if you finger on ['juːnɪks]?" (not much, probably)

That would be an interesting idea for a project: Give an operational definition of what a Perl guru is.

There is some Dutch guy named Roode who has answered a lot of my questions. He answers very technical and very correct, but then he usually has some nasty comment. I think of him as Dr Rude.

There was n-ary a tree in sight.

On the MediaWiki mailing list, there is someone named Ruud Habets. *lol*
