Larry Wall Speaks

Posted on 25 February 2005 by Demian Turner

Seeing as it’s Friday, a bit of programming humour is not out of order, certainly not from one of the great masters who reminds us that a computer language is afterall just a language.

Some highlights:

  • Real programmers can write assembly code in any language. :-)
  • echo "Your stdio isn’t very std."
  • "You want it in one line? Does it have to fit in 80 columns? :-)"
  • "Unix is like a toll road on which you have to stop every 50 feet to pay another nickel. But hey! You only feel 5 cents poorer each time."
