» Hyper-fatugly! +

Good Lord, how can anyone want to use perl6/pugs, let alone develop it! The syntax is so awful they had to start adding superlatives to describe its level of convolusion! I give you the hyper-fatarrow (yes, that's really the name, at least colloquially); may want to sit down first, it could give you a brain hemorrhage just looking at it. Here it comes: »=>«. What does it do? to Mr. Wall, "reduce operators only turn infix into list operators. What you really want here is a hyper-fatarrow: my %h = [at]k »=>« @v;" See, clear as...mud...hardened mud with a lead casing, and you're blind-folded, or better yet, your eyes were ripped out by scavenging baboons then taped back into their sockets by a muppet, and...well, you get the idea. Yes, indeed, perl5 always makes me glad that I'm a ruby user; and it looks like that will hold true for the next incarnation as well. Not to knock perl users -- they can have all the hyper-fatugliness they want, but give me the fresh mountain breeze which is ruby any day of the week, and twice on sundays.

"perl is the devil!"

Do you really mean that there is such a syntax.. or are you just making it up ?
I am an R user, so under the impression that programming is all breeze... I am rather alarmed that such foul languages can exist.
