» 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); actually...you may want to sit down first, it could give you a brain hemorrhage just looking at it. Here it comes: »=>«. What does it do? Well...um...according 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!"
