I haven't looked at it closely enough but it's definitely better than Ruby :)
Fuck Ruby tbh
Voxera78362yMuch of perls reputation comes from the heavy use of regex which most find very hard to understand.
Redders10332y@Voxera that's because they're not real Devs.
A real Dev might not be great with regex, but they wouldn't hate on a language over it!
Perl was a great language, when I worked on things built with it, it was nice!
Probably same issue as Java, some don't get it, and have problems that wouldn't be obvious in other languages, so they blame the language, when it's their shit code that is at fault.
Perl's great: I still use it.
I don't understand the hate either, tbh.
A common criticism is that Perl is a write-only language. But when you have seen enough obscure and depraved C++ and Fortran code, this criticism wears thin.
