Apparently my post on Perl 5’s overloading is deeply, deeply offensive. Here’s an email I got out of the blue today:
Perl isn’t your first language isn’t it? You strike me as Java programmer. Look. Don’t do overloading. If you need to do overloading then you are probably doing something wrong.
“If you don’t care about defensive programming, then Perl 5′s overloading is perfect, and you can stop reading now. Also, please let me know so I can avoid working on code with you, thanks.”
No. I don’t, because we are not programming in Java where that type of mentality is needed. So yeah, please feel free to memorize my name and lets make damn sure we never work with each other.
And people say there’s no hope for humanity!
