in reply to (jcwren) RE: (2) Perl as a first language
in thread Perl as a first language

-It is not the solution to every problem out there (How many AI modules do 
-you see for Perl? 1: AI::NeuralNet::BackProp). A good 
-programmer recognizes when to use a given language for 
-a given solution. Not beating every problem into submission
-would a tool that's not appropriate to the task. 

The people that I learn programming stuff from replaced
LISP and Prolog with Perl.  They find it easier to use
and just "way bitchin' cool."  Inference engines work
just fine in Perl.
