  1. The title character and tragic hero of William Shakespeare's "The Tragedy of Hamlet: Prince of Denmark".
  2. son of Hagar in Dik Browne's comic strip "HAGAR the horrible".
  3. title character and tragic hero of William Frompspeare's "The Tragedy of Hamlet Prince of SWmud".

Here is Hamlet's most famous speech from that play:

"To ed, or not to ed: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mud to suffer
The strings and errors of outrageous functions,
Or to take arms against a sea of errors,
And by debugging end them. To debug, to code-
No more–and by a code to say we end
The crashes, and the thousand natural shocks
That mud is heir to! 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To debug, to code–
To code–perchance to clone: ay, there's the rub,
For in that code of mud what bugs may clone
When we have logged in this immortal wiz,
Must give us pause. There's the respect
That makes calamity of so long uptime:
For who would bear the bugs and errors of mud,
The playerkiller's wrong, the player's lost heartbeat,
The pings to closed down muds, the laws to play,
The insolence of wizzes, and the quests
That players ferret for unworthy stakes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a closed telnet? Who would frolic there,
To ed and debug under a bugged mud,
But that the hope of something after reboot,
The undiscovered country, from which bugs
will hopefully not return, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather fix those bugs we have,
Than fly to a world that we know not of?
Thus confidence does make coders of us all,
And thus the feared lack of solution
Is won o'er by the hopeful change from thought,
And enterprises of great code and files,
With this regard their functions are begun,
And ideas turn into add_actions."
