in thread do you know Perl ?, or do you know ?

I never said there was no such thing as great programmers. I just said that there is a difference between great programmers and just programmers. And just because a person is a great mathematician or a great logician does *not* mean they are great programmers. I don't think you or anyone has actually seen every mathematician's or every logician's or even every professor's code so I'd say that for you to say that every scholar is a great programmer is premature. You simply cannot back that with facts.

My point was that there *is* indeed a such thing as a person being a great programmer. I would also say that I think a programmer is both an analyst AND a coder but not all analysts are programmers in the coding sense.

    I think that the order of the posts confused you Jim. My post was in response to ChOas, please check the thread again? :)
      Oh my! I do apologize. Sorry about that.

        Not a problem in the slightest, I just didn't want a misunderstanding. :)
