Contrast and compare that to others notably Java, C++ and Python. Btw the latter I distaste so much - both language, creators and users - I thought it unfair to make any further comment about it.

That may be the case but as far as the evolutionary computing you talked about is concerned, unfortunately there doesn't appear to be anything in CPAN comparable to DEAP.

(Side note: evolutionary computing cannot generally be considered to be an optimizing approach, despite contrary language (including something I'm about to mention) and there is at least one approach in the field where the evolution is in memes rather than genes and so where no one breeds and no one dies, namely particle swarm optimization.)
