Re: multilanguage meeting idea (was Re: [PLUG] Perl question...)

I'd be interested. I'd contribute to the Perl code if that was called for. I'm a Perl programmer who wants to become a better Perl programmer and perhaps a Ruby programmer.

thank you for the pleac link, it's very interesting.

Perhaps I'm too much of a programmer type, but I really appreciated

solved in Ruby, Python and Perl (with explanations of course) would

doing things (as if there's just one Perl way...).  But I'm very interested
other high level languages as well.


Not a bad idea. PLEAC[1] is an incomplete translation of the examples in the
Perl Cookbook to a number of other languages. Perhaps we could do a Perl
Idioms -> Python/Ruby meeting sometime in the future? Anybody else
interested in that?
