in reply to Let's face it, Perl *is* a scripting language

Even C is a scripting language. It's a script for the C compiler, which the compiler interprets to output a version of byte-code, which ultimately some microcode inside a hardware device will usually interpret.

In the end, it only depends from which side of the 11-sided coin you look at the world from.
