Subject: [PATCH] CodingGuidelines: remove suggestion to write commands in Perl/SH
Date: Sat, 17 Apr 2021 10:43:54 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <patch-1.1-83266f30b67-20210417T084346Z-avarab@gmail.com> (raw)

Remove a suggestion to write new commands in Perl or Shell to
experiment. This advice was added in 6d0618a820a (Add
Documentation/CodingGuidelines, 2007-11-08).

Since then the consensus changed to having no new such commands unless
necessary, and existing ones have been actively migrated to C.
