in thread Perl vs Lisp/Java/C/C++

I probably am writing Lisp (and don't get me started on Prologue either) off to easily. I didn't exactly mean how many lines it takes to make a program - although that's a very good point! I meant just a raw count of 500,000 lines. I don't much like Java, but supposidly one of Java's selling points is that it can scale to be extremely large and still be reasonably maintainable. Truth be told I'm not sure I buy into that myself.

Perl and Lisp do have similarities in how cryptic a program can look. But I think the recursive nature in lisp tends to add a degree of compexity, compaired to languages that are a bit more strait foreward.
