I only put that in there because I asked a like question in a different forum and got all sorts of
"use C++" or "use LISP" answers.
And that's why I qualified "when studying algorithms". Because
there are some things for which other languages may be more
appropriate as a studying ground. For example, if you are
studying programming languages theory, it might be
better to stick with Scheme or LISP so that you can more
easily translate your Lambda calculus and tail recursions
and continuations into working code... (and no, I don't want
to reopen the "Lisp vs Perl" discussion :-)
