Re: OT: Why is C so popular?

 Unfortunately, nowadays "s/C /Perl /".
Wouldn't it be easier to read if you wrote it s/C/Perl/ ?
So that it wouldn't change Choo-choo to Perlhoo-choo.

When I saw the question, I thought the obvious counter-example was so that it doesn't change C# to Perl# :)

Now that's a frightening thought.  Just what would Perl# be like?

Cheers, Dave

PS I'm a Luddite that refuses to learn C++. Backward compatibility with C was the single biggest mistake Stroustrup made.
