I don't know about you, but I feel that Perl is a great scripting language. I have used it quite a bit in the past and it always helped me accomplish what I wanted to accomplish. I must also admit that Python now has my favor and one of the reason is the simpler syntax and object manipulation. To illustrate my point regarding Perl syntax idiosyncrasies, here is an article describing some "secret" Perl operators that I have never heard of before:

  • The Spaceship Operator
  • The Eskimo Greeting Operator
  • The Goatse Operator
  • The Turtle Operator
  • The Inchworm Operator
  • The Inchworm-On-A-Stick Operator
  • The Spacestation Operator
  • The Venus Operator

Have you used those operators? What is your favorite scripting language? Leave a note in the comments.
