in thread So much like a natural language

I'm not far enough up that curve to welcome a slide, but I know how you feel.

While Perl remains my language of choice, I did go off and learn Ruby. I highly recommend it, not that I want to try to use it at work, or supplant Perl, or even truly believe that it stands a chance against Perl and Python, but because there are some very, very nice things about that language, that made me think differently.
