in thread pissed off about functional programming

Of course you conveniently omitted your definition of HLL. Maybe you'd like to give us some examples of un-functional high level languages?

    Maybe you'd like to give us some examples of un-functional high level languages?

    Ruby? Lisp? Smalltalk? Perl? Pop-11? Eiffel? Javascript?

      So you're saying Lisp, Perl, and Javascript don't support functions as first class values? Or maybe you're claiming that higher-order functions aren't commonly used in those languages?

        No. I'm claiming that none of those languages would normally be called a functional language in the same category as O'Caml, Haskell, etc. - which was what I thought we were talking about.
