( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've used awk, which does have hashes and regex. sed has regex, but I'm not sure I'd call it a "language". I know there are others with both features (VBS, JavaScript, Java...) and I could write libraries to replicate either.

Leaving out Perl's formats -- I tend to think the format statement in Perl is pretty lame (I find printf much more useful. imho, Perl's format compares quite unfavorably with Fortran's format) -- I really would miss most of the features in the poll; I've just used hashes and regex more often than any of the other features, so I would miss them more.

At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.
