in thread (OT) Where is programming headed?

Good observation. Note I didn't try to categorize Perl, since I'm very well aware that people have worked with it in just about all of the mentioned categories in some form or other. In this way it's probably easier to pigeonhole a language you know less about, rather than more.

As a general disclaimer though, I did not try to apply my own spotty knowledge in making that list. I referenced my textbook from that class I mentioned, as I figured the Author(s) knew more about the subject than I.

    I didn't mean to imply that the list was yours and not the books; in fact I thought that you had taken it from the book. Of course this brings up an even more important and general principle in life, covering all disciplines: just because someone wrote it down doesn't mean it's true. :-) It always pays to find out for oneself, and when that option isn't available (there's only so much time, after all), it pretty much always pays to find the opinion of an expert on something rather than, say, someone like me. :-)
