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.
