IIRC is Ruby using sigils for @instance and @@class variables..

Python has self, JS has this.

But JS is setting this implicitly, i.e. it's not the first argument like self in Python and Perl.

You could mimic the semantics of JS and Ruby with closure variables holding references...

PHP seems to have an implicit $this.

    Yep, PHP has an implicit $this, and also has self which refers to the current class (not object).
