reminds me of the first time i encountered a VHLL (very high
level language) it was my first or second year of CS at
school, and we had to program a version of the sieve of
erosthenes (sp?) in C and in ASM so we could see the speed
difference. my professor, a big fan of VHLL's said: "that's
a waste of programmer time!" and in 1 line of a language
called ISET-L wrote a sieve of erosthenes program. 20 seconds.
that's when i began to learn what a good programming language
can do for you... and now, i love perl... the swiss army
chainsaw of VHLL's :)
