in reply to Perl - Is it an OO Language

Choosing a language just because of it's OO abilities or lack of is like picking a girlfriend because she has a nice chassis. There is more to her than one aspect.

Many clients ask me what the best programming language for business is. I respond that it depends on the goals at hand. A bus and a sports car can both get you to your destination, but if you need speed, then a bus is out classed. If you need to transport a lot of people, then a sports car comes up short. Sure you can make 50 trips in the sports car to balance the one trip in the bus, but why?

Like some of the other Perl posters have said, donít evaluate a language strictly on OO.

Donít let the bright shiny objects distract you :}
