There's more than one way to do it (TMTOWTDI or TIMTOWTDI, pronounced "Tim Toady") is a Perl motto. The language was designed with this idea in mind, in that it "doesn't try to tell the programmer how to program." This makes it easy to write extremely messy programs, but, as proponents of this motto argue, it also makes it easy to write beautiful and concise ones.[citation needed]

Recently this motto has been very much discussed in the Perl community, and eventually extended to There's more than one way to do it, but sometimes consistency is not a bad thing either (TIMTOWTDIBSCINABTE, pronounced "Tim Toady Bicarbonate").[1]

Notably, the Zen of Python differs from TIMTOWTDI: "There should be one—and preferably only one—obvious way to do it." [2] This encourages doing things the best way available, with secondary alternatives if use cases require them. Its purpose is to make the language easy to learn and remember.
