( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

When I started university (1999) I was already familiar with Javascript and several BASIC varieties (including QBASIC and VisualBASIC).

At university in our first year, first term we were taught Haskell. In the second term we moved on to an OO/procedural language which you won't have heard of. In third term, we had a course which covered all of C, C++ and Java - as you can imagine, not in much detail.

What happened after that depended very much on what modules you chose. Prolog was the standard language for AI courses; SQL was used in database courses; etc. For projects you were generally allowed to choose whichever language you liked - I usually used Haskell or Perl.

Looking at the current syllabus it appears that Java has pushed out Object-Oriented Turing. I'm glad to see that the Programming I course is still firmly focussed on Haskell.

use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name
