in thread Choose the most powerful language

tinman, I absolutely agree with you- but you should have put that last sentence in bold and had it bronzed. If you don't understand what I mean, consider this: the person who knows more languages, as adeptly pointed out in the article tilly linked to, will simply have a better understanding of ALL of the languages. This person will not only be a more adept coder, but will better understand the risks and venues involved in choosing a particular language and is better suited to evaluate a projects' situation- especially mission critical weaknesses. Correctly evaluating a project is difficult but the more plans of attack you have available to begin with, the better!

So, for all you new coders out there who have become religious about Perl, I urge you all to at least peruse an online tutorial to introduce yourselves to other language environments!
