in reply to Artificial Intelligence Programming in Perl

Why is this? Is Perl not suited for AI applications? Is it too slow? Is Perl OO programming too messy?

LISP got there first and staked a claim on mindshare. That claim has been slowly eroding, but not, seemingly, in favor of Perl. The latest AI stuff I've seen has been in Java. Why? Probably because Java is the OO language of choice in many settings, and the AI crowd moves in a small number of herds.

I once did an AI assignment in COBOL, but that's a different (sick, twisted) story...

    Perl isn't exactly known as a clean OO language (with just cause). From what I've heard (unconfirmed rumours mostly) of Perl 6 this should be changing relatively soon. Any opinions as to how much this will contribute to people taking Perl seriously for AI projects?

[james28909]: thanks
[james28909]: what i am trying to do is track state of a chat based application. i need to be able to store the channels and such for a user, and when they join a new server/channel i need to be able to update that feild.
[james28909]: do you think OO would best suite that?
[karlgoethebier]: james28909: The last two are not mainstream. You have been warned ;-)
[karlgoethebier]: james28909: I don't know. Try it.
[james28909]: foreach server this bot is on, the gateway sends me a json response, which i parse out all the info with JSON, and this response has user information, i need to be able to add a user, and then update the user info when they join/leave rooms ect
