in thread (OT) Where is programming headed?
It's dangerous to make such lists, though. For example,
nowadays Lisp (in the form of Common Lisp, at least), is
probably used more to program in imperative and OO styles than
functional. It just happens that you can reasonably do
functional programming in it, and has somehow become pigeonholed
as a functional language in some circles (when in fact there are
probably better languages to use to really get into functional
Of course, just about any language is subject to such stereotypes;
just look at how many people regard Perl. :-)
