man perl 29.05.2003

Jeg har aldrig forstået et CLI-programs funktion fuldt ud, alene ved at læse man-siderne til det. Det virker som om de er skrevet ud fra holdningen om, at programmet og dets dokumentation var svært at skrive, og derfor skal det også være svært at læse og forstå.

De man-sider hvor jeg forstået mindst, men til gengæld formået at grine mest må være dem til perl, hvor nedenstående perler (get it?) er sakset:

Perl actually stands for Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister, but don't tell anyone I said that.

The three principal virtues of a programmer are Laziness, Impatience, and Hubris.

Hvis du har en Emacs-installation (eller kommer forbi Linuxlab en dag p√• afveje), s√• pr√łv at kigge i installationsbiblioteket. Der ligger man-siderne for "abstinence" og "contraception" (eller noget lignende, det afh√¶nger af versionen s√• vidt jeg husker)... :oD

Det var faktisk "celibacy" og "condom", der var man-sider til. Condom er lidt lang (!), men celibacy kan gengives her i sin fulde l√¶ngde (selvom formatteringen nok g√•r lidt fl√łjten):

Hej,

`man perl` (eller `perldoc perl`) er kun ment som en indholdsfortegnelse til de tusinder af sider dokumentation der kommer med perl.

Er dokumentationen ligeså sjov så? (;
