in reply to Scripting Language Biases: The Tech-Sector's New Menace?

A few years ago, I was one of those elitists that said people who didn't code directly in C had weak minds. Then I learned Perl, and discovered that fluently programming in Perl can be just as intellectually satisfying as C or ASM. I was delighted when I finally understood the Schwartzian Transform. My mouth hit the floor when I saw this solution (external link) for creating an ASCII Cantor set.

So, I think the solution to low-level elitism is to show off some of the amazing solutions that can be developed with high-level concepts.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.
