PERL update

After almost 4 months of PERL this is what I have to say.

  • Its extremely handy for short and snappy stuff

  • Everything under the sun is available in CPAN but figuring out which is best suited for your needs is a bitch

  • While developing webapps with CGI not knowing use Carp::qw(fatalsToBrowser); is the last thing you want to do (coz I did that)

  • Why ? Oh why do warnings and use strict; exist if you can write stuff faster without it :((
