In this article I provide a practical analysis of programming practices and education. The phrase ``Good programmers are lazy'' is very often offered to students as a guide to good programming. This statement is very wrong and reflects some of the problems with attitudes in computer science today.
Yes! Something i wanted to hear and was doing rants about all over.
Thank you, mister Cort Dougan, very much!
`perl`form the start, didn't know clear reasons for quite some time; now i know another real one!
We will encourage you to develop the three great virtues of a programmer: laziness, impatience, and hubris.
I'm glad, that i finally started to publish efficent (fast to complete, thus non CPU global-warming)
`sed` and BRE experience against
perl and ERE bloat, unreadability, inefficiency. I do that with much more thinking, and i'm not lazy to set up and run benchmarks to help find the best choice. Funny, that size sometimes is bigger, when script is faster. Just like RISC and commonly accepted assembler code unrolling technique. Some tricks are just funny, because i don't know, how i've invented them.
Also i don't see order and efficiency in e.g. autotools, kbuild/kconfig (working on that); tty/console (also working); editors/trivial text tools (need to finally do some coding of
A must read. Salute, paper-wasting peer-reviewed ignorant "diary cows"!!!
