When you compare two languages, not only that usually regexp is just a small part of the language, but also it is not only about the language itself, most of the time, IDE is important for decision making, when you are looking at applications that exceeds a certain size.

Then why don't we use Java w/ Eclipse for everything? That's pretty much is the ultimate IDE situation you could have.

    One shouldn't use Java w/ Eclipse for everything because it doesn't fit every situation. Sometimes all you want for an ide is a read-eval-print loop. One doesn't always want the set of tools with the most features; one often wants the set of tools that fits the problem best.

    pg was merely pointing out that the tools that accompany a language are frequently as important as the language itself. After all, what is perl without CPAN?

    And on a side note, my computer is a lowly 1.4 ghz with 512 MB ram. I find eclipse to be too slow ;-)

      I know, I was being sarcastic :-P. You're exactly right. As much as I like Eclipse, it only turns Java from intolerable to tolerable to work with in my eyes. I'd still prefer to write Perl in notepad or pico (although I use jedit... mmmm jedit) than Java with Eclipse. You argue for a language just because it has a great IDE.
