When I grow up, I'll be a Perl Programmer! (78)

1 Name: Alexander!DxY0NCwFJg : 2006-04-06 22:57 ID:oXoZbraC

Schoolwork is keeping me from doing anything with this particular project, but some years ago I decided that I'm going to learn how to program.

I've decided to learn Perl first. Please tell me why this is a horrible idea! The more interesting reasoning, the better!

2 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-06 22:58 ID:Heaven

It's a perfect idea. Go ahead and do it. Get started!

I don't think Perl is an ideal first language, but you certainly could make worse choices.

You could make better choices too. Of the major scripting languages, Perl is one of the nastier ones.

Also, if you want to go on to learn any form of C, Perl is so different from it that you'll have to re-learn many things.

how to become a perl programmer:

  1. learn BASIC
  2. learn x86 assembly
  3. learn java
  4. forget java
  5. learn c++
  6. learn c
  7. learn php
  8. forget php
  9. learn perl
  10. forget BASIC, assembly, and c++

6 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-07 20:31 ID:OMcy04SB

And what would you suggest as an ideal first language?

7 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-07 20:47 ID:cicY/fQj

pascal is quite cool to learn the basics, but its syntax is so different from C and his derivates (like perl) that it's quite useless.

Let's see, java is quite simple to learn, and then you'll learn to manipulate objects (which is not at all perl-like but it's useful)

personally I began with pascal. Then I learnt perl. At school threre was some Scheme (which is a good thing to learn in the contrary to general opinion) and now it's java (which sux, but it's simple)

Oh yes, and BEFORE learning perl you should learn Regular Expressions. Without that, perl loses a half of it's potential.

Perl may not be an ideal first language, but I don't think such a thing -- "ideal first language" -- exists. Perl is as good a place to start as any. The way I see it, the advantages of starting with Perl would be:

  • It's an actual useful language used in the real-world (unlike BASIC and Pascal), so you can feel like you're doing something worthwhile. I know I don't like to learn things that are only useful for learning -- feels like a waste.
  • It supports many different styles of programming, so you can learn things a piece at a time. Structured, object-oriented, functional, you can do it all in Perl, to some extent.

Possible downsides, but non-fatal:

  • Some Perl features are ad-hoc, arbitrary, and thoroughly wrongheaded (e.g., global variables like $[). However, it shouldn't be too hard to avoid these features. You wouldn't be interested in them as a beginner anyways.
  • A lot of Perl code out there is unreadable and bad. Just take Perl examples you find on the internet with a grain of salt. Don't automatically assume something you see is good Perl code. Then you'll be fine.

>>8 is right (just that objects in perl... well...)

as for unreadable perl code, it might be leet but I'd say that if perl code is well written it might be most readable code ever (for someone who know perl of course, otherwise you can read binary file as well). At least more readable than scheme (or lisp)

but then there is something like utility... perl is really the best for internet applications and text transformations, as well as for scripts (irssi, gimp..., bash scripts as it can send commands directly to system) but for applications like games or graphics it's not a good choice at all

10 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-08 22:06 ID:Heaven


I think there are SDL and OpenGL modules for Perl, but I can't say I've ever tried them. Of course you won't be doing per-pixel graphics operations in Perl anytime soon, but it should at least allow you to play with stuff. How well it works in practice, though, I have no idea.

11 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-09 10:05 ID:cicY/fQj

oh yes, there are also GtK and QT modules... but doing this with perl is just wrong. (in exeption of giving a GUI to a simple script, like text transformer or batch whatever file)

My worthless two years of vo-tech education taught me to program in Turbo Pascal, Cobol and RPG IV. I promptly forgot all of them upon graduation. My first (and only) programming job involved Clipper, a DBase IV-based language that I learned by reading the source code and comparing it to what was on the screen.

I wish I'd learned C instead. At least it's useful.

THERE'S MORE THAN ONE WAY TO DO IT. That's the motto of Perl and Larry Wall. It has led to a very bloated language over the years. You may find it hard to understand a Perl program you wrote when you come back to it after 6 months, and impossible to follow someone else's Perl program.

Python was designed by professors to make it difficult for their students to introduce bugs into their code. Derived from ABC language as I recall.

Professional programmers say they just enjoy Python.

Euphoria is more obscure, but supposedly simple to learn and powerful.

C/Java/Pascal etc. are lower level than Perl/Python/TCL etc.
You can simply do more in a line of Python than in a line of C or Java. Several studies have proven that. Companies switch to the higher level scripting languages to get projects developed faster. TCL is still dominant there I suppose, but losing ground to Python.

29 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-04-26 09:13 ID:Heaven

> Python was designed by professors to make it difficult for their students to introduce bugs into their code.

Guido van Rossum was never a professor, and he didn't make the language for students. I also question the part regarding the introduction of bugs.

> Professional programmers say they just enjoy Python.

I must not be professional enough then.

> It has led to a very bloated language over the years.

While Python is nowhere near the same league of syntactic evil as Perl, I must point out that it's also suffering from featuritis. It's not a simple or consistent language, all the kowtowing to the contrary.

30 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-26 14:53 ID:Heaven

Please don't, >>28.

I love Python and all, but Python vs. Perl gets tiring pretty quick.

31 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-28 05:35 ID:XXdYtRmU

yeah, my first google hit says Python's predecessor, ABC, was the one made by the teachers. And Guido worked with them.

>>>SOME professional programmers enjoy using Python. There will ALWAYS be flamers no matter what opinion you express. And they usually don't bother to mention the parts of your statement that they agree with.


Lua should be mentioned in a discussion of bloat. Its owners resist letting the basic package get over 100KB. You run into nastiness (binds) when you need to call Windows API though.

Euphoria is not as high level as TCL/Python/Perl, but it has the Windows API interface built in, and it has a to-C translator.

>Python vs. Perl gets tiring pretty quick

The original poster was a newb asking why he shouldn't use Perl. I was writing to him, not to old fahrts that tire quickly.

This is an argument against it, because...?

See, strict minimalist languages are not easier for beginners to learn. There's no requirement to learn all of a language when starting out programming in it, and as a matter of fact, there's no need to learn all of it to use it normally either. This is why C++ is so popular despite having a ridiculously huge feature-set: Nobody bothers learning all of it, and the language works just fine even if you ignore most of it.

Have a large and varied feature set does, however, let you pick the parts you are comfortable with using, and focus on those.

> This is why C++ is so popular despite having a ridiculously huge feature-set: Nobody bothers learning all of it, and the language works just fine even if you ignore most of it.

Except when you want to work with other programmers, and they program in a different island of the language.

36 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-29 00:50 ID:Heaven


That is only a problem if you are going to work with other programmers, which you probably won't as a hobbyist.

37 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-04-29 04:52 ID:Heaven

How many hobbyist programmers do not eventually start working with others? It's not just working with others either, but also simply reading the code written by others.

I concur with >>35. Languages with too many doodads are just as unpleasant as those with too few.

38 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-04-29 04:56 ID:Heaven

I neglected to mention: how often have I used a feature of an overly-complicated language, then come back to the code a month or more later and had no idea what I was looking at?

Far too often for comfort.

39 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-29 05:17 ID:Heaven

clearly comments are a feature you're not familiar with

40 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-29 08:29 ID:XXdYtRmU

A hobbyist will download sample programs from the internet. I did this with Java. I kept buying books so I could follow the programs. The book stack is almost 3 feet high now. Java Core, Java GUI, Java Swing, Java Beans, Java AWT, Java Kiss My Ass, Java Never Again.

Some language "guardians" learned from that and try to keep their languages small. Lua and FORTH are the best examples I can think of. FORTH founder Moore is an extremist at removing redundancy. He has a complete system: OS, GUI API, apps, etc in less that 1 MB. FORTH is still tricky to learn though. (http://ficl.sourceforge.net/)

A hobbyist can make things easier on himself by choosing one of the languages that are deliberately kept small. Lua is my choice. And I remember something about Pascal and TCL language definitions fitting on 1 or 2 pages. (freepascal.org) Turbo Pascal was fun back in the 80s because it compiled instantly.

But Perl is the opposite of this keep-it-small idea. It can be a real struggle to follow a sample Perl program that I find on Google.

41 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-04-29 11:52 ID:Heaven

My, my, what a perceptive comment.

I'd appreciate keeping the jackassery to more appropriate boards.

42 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-29 14:16 ID:+xU8q+xD

The problem with Lua is that if you want to call C libraries, you have to write tricky C code for the bindings. And personally, I find programming a lot more interesting when I can do graphics and stuff, rather than just little command-line things, which is all you can do with bare Lua.

Perl and Python, while they are big languages, don't have this drawback because their popularity has led to a lot of bindings and things already being written, but with Lua, if any binding exists, it's probably a barely usable version 0.2 that doesn't even support the latest version of the language.

43 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-29 19:02 ID:Heaven

> FORTH is still tricky to learn though.

So, uh, your point was...?

44 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-30 03:41 ID:bsf8I0Uz

When you fail to learn Perl you can blame the syntax. When you fail to learn FORTH you can't, because there is no syntax.

45 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-04-30 07:43 ID:Heaven

Learning to use a language involves more than just the syntax though. If it was just syntax, we'd all be using infinite tapes and states (or functional Lisp), since that's as simple as we can get.

Perl crams a lot of ability into the syntax, so you can do certain things very simply. Forth goes the other direction, so while the syntax is dirt simple, doing anything is harder. Imagine implementing regular expressions in Forth. Yech.

46 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-30 10:25 ID:XXdYtRmU

Which language do you all most ENJOY using [and why]?

Maybe that's the best approach since the original poster
seems to be a hobbyist.

For me it's Python since 1) it's a pretty complete package with all the documents and libs I need, and 2) I follow it easily. I don't think I've ever gotten stuck on anything for more than 2 minutes. I can't say that about anything else I've tried.

But I can see where some people might prefer to invest in Perl's learning curve to receive the POWER of the syntax.

And FORTH reminds me of LOGO: just enough commands to do something interesting. I can see the appeal of a language+library so small that you can keep it all in your head and never re-read the manual. Yes it's more coding work, but you don't get diverted for 2 or 3 days tracking down a man page for some odd function. At least not often. That ain't fun.

So, which one is your fav? And, which one is next on your list to try?

47 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-04-30 14:06 ID:Heaven

For me, C. Yes, the thing is low-level and easy to screw up, but I like how WYSIWYG it all is. If your program is doing something wrong, you know it's not because of some bizarre automagical language feature, it's because you screwed up. And it's the language I have the most experience with.

"Scripting" oriented languages like Perl and Python mystify me with their implicit references, shallow vs. deep copying, automagic conversion of integers to strings and so on. There's just too much hidden stuff going on that I have no idea what my program is really doing. It may seem to work, but I don't know if it always will.

48 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-05-01 08:42 ID:XXdYtRmU

>For me, C.

A tip for the C beginner: pointers will kill you with bugs you can't trace. Avoid them if you can.

i prefer perl (and scripting high level languages in general) because :

  • you don't need pointers
  • you don't have to write loads of lines just to have unlimited-size array or a chained list
  • internal regex engine
  • and so on

after all of that i'm learning C and Java because :

  • there are situation where you HAVE TO code in low level (pure algo, games etc...)

as for objects... Java owns C++

53 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-05-02 00:54 ID:Heaven

Ruby and C.

Ruby because it contains what I like about both Perl and Python, without most of the fail. Someone stated that "Ruby is Perl's prettier sister", and it's true despite some of Ruby's glaring weaknesses.

C because it's a portable assembler with a beautiful syntax. I write a lot of performance code that's both time and space constrained, and it just wouldn't be possible without C.

You may notice two things in common between C and Ruby as well: they're both terse and fairly consistent.

54 Name: zacki : 2006-05-02 11:54 ID:Vug+pB0Q

I prefer C... and there's one reason C is more usable than Perl...

Perl is a scripting language. If you are going to sell any software or try to get other compuuters to implement any of your scripts, you have to set up the Java environment on them. In addition, while Perl is awesome for making one's own code, it doesn't help when making code for anyone else in the world, because you can never hide the source code.

C is also better for it's ability to affect the OS. If you're a skilled programmer, you will find that you need such code.

55 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-05-02 12:08 ID:XXdYtRmU

TCL when I already have C programs that do most of the stuff I need. TCL has a simple argv string interface to C routines. I can add that to old C programs quickly, then write TCL code to tie the C programs together, passing data between them and displaying it on a GUI with Tk. And with Expect, I often don't even have to recompile the old C programs; just use their existing stdin and stdout. Prototyping is easier this way instead of adding new C code since TCL is high-level script and interpreted instead of compiled.

Java owns nobody. Java is an mediocre language for mediocre programmers to write mediocre code in. Java is not horrible, but neither is Java actually good at anything. It is merely average.

Actually, the reason for that is "marketing."

59 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-05-02 13:48 ID:XXdYtRmU

Companies pick Java because it has a lot of support from Sun and other companies. The others (perl, python, etc.) come from individuals. There's no hotline to call for answers like you can get with Java. And the product's reliability is in doubt when there's no big corporate backer. Companies just like to deal with other companies.

Anyhow, we had a few good posts where people named their favorites and good reasons for them. I'd like to see more of those; I might learn something. I already moved Ruby higher on my list of things to do. If that poster can recommend a download package with eveything (docs, libs, interpreter, debugger, etc), I'd like to see it.

60 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2006-05-02 17:10 ID:MdOKSYEn

See the "PHP users are dumb" thread. I guess PHP is okay for "little web doodads", though.
