One sentence. Talk about things you know something about.
Seems there is more people with C overdose.
Update (RE John's update):
What the dictionary failed to say is ... this is true about PURELY functional languages. There are quite a few languages that are "mostly" functional ... and being used for real applications(Eg. Erlang). And then there are languages (like Perl) that are mostly imperative, but contain some functional features. And those features ARE usualy very helpfull. Yes if you spend twenty years programming C your brain must be affected. In that case those features WILL look confusing. But that's exactly the reason why those programmers should be taught about them.
Seems I pissed off some people so much that they were not lazy to search for my older nodes and downvote them as well. Isn't the voting supposed to be about the node Mr. $Coward?
