- There's More Than One Way To Do It, particularly associated with the Perl programming language.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The interpreter itself is good for it, allowing me to reload bits of code in a slapdash manner, and the TMTOWTDI philosophy behind the language lends itself quite well to applications such as music, where *how* you express yourself is somehow important, as well as the end result.
Its unofficial motto is, "There's More Than One Way To Do It," or "TMTOWTDI," owing to the extreme flexibility of the syntax.
TMTOWTDI - of ﬂ ine or runtime • Works on multiple XSDs (caveat, collisions) pastorize in use pastorize -- mode offline -- style multiple -- destination/tmp/lib/perl
And over time, I became at least functional, though perhaps not idiomatic in Perl (though, because of TMTOWTDI, it's hard to judge that in Perl).
