Bugs, yes, but also parseability problems by your definition. If the parser cannot be expected to compute bad programming in the C example due to execution details, how can it be expected to in perl or any language?

I am convinced all mod comp courses are snoozefests. It's like being taught the identity property in middle school and gritting your teeth at how obvious it all is. Yet the textbook costs over $100- people get paid for this!

[marto]: under certain circumstances perhaps
[RonW]: as I understand it, RPerl "compiles" a subset of Perl to C, so I would expect the final executable to run a lot faster
[RonW]: Is there an English language version of the site?
[LanX]: but Afaik Perl is on average about 10-20 times slower than C
[LanX]: no
