L. Peter Deutsch hates Perl
... and Larry Wall.
Deutsch: [...] that is Lisp is lexically pretty monotonous.
Seibel: I think Larry Wall described it as a bowl of oatmeal with fingernail clippings in it.
Deutsch: Well, my description of Perl is something that looks like it came out of the wrong end of a dog. I think Larry Wall has a lot of nerve talking about language design - Perl is an abomination as a language.
I wonder what the right end of a dog is?
