Computer language design is just like a stroll in the park. Jurassic Park, that is.
So said Perl creator Larry Wall . His words reminded me of a poem which has been knocking around my mind for many years:
He coded in Fortran like hell,It would, I suppose, apply to many languages.
wrote programs with whistle and bell.
Now feels that this tool
has made him a fool
but cannot get rid of its spell.
