in reply to functional functions

Only 64...kinda reminds me of RISC vs CISC (how many addressing modes does PHP need, anyway? ;)). It is profoundly strange, of course, to consider Perl RISC'ish in any way, though it makes sense with your subset of the language. Just my thoughts.

    Except for the whole fact that there are few RISC architectures still widely used, in favor of the more bloated x86. Yet Perl is still one of the most popular languages around the globe...

    I don't think I even regularly use 64 Perl functions. Maybe 16 on a regular basis? Maybe 64 since I started Perl in the 7th grade, so 7 or 8 years. That averages to like 8 functions a year (yeah yeah, I know the math makes no sense). To be able to write so much that does so much with so little, I think thats a tribute to the power of Perl.
