Favorite programming library, ever.

Postby iblis » Fri Jan 14, 2005 4:28 pm

For the coders out here:

What's your favorite programming library? Be it a single header file, a perl module, a php include, doesn't matter.

What saves your code-writing ass, hands down, over and over?

Mine's probably been the module Net::SSH::Perl, though the cgic library has come as a close second at times.

This started out as a poll, but christ, there are too many libraries out there to list here.

I can't say that I have a favorite library. I must say, however, that the non-linear pack to Mathematica is pretty cool, though it's not quite a developer language. I'll never forget when I first wrote this on the UTK Unix system...

Code: Select all
for(;;) {
    fork();
}


Lots of fun...

fork() bombs are fun. But float bombs are forever. :mrgreen:

Code: Select all
perl -e '$_= ($_*76543+23456789) % 1234567891 while 1'
