in thread Overcoming addiction to Lisp

  • When I program in C, I laugh at those who foolishly squander CPU cycles with their "high level" language constructs.
  • When I program in Fortran, I scoff at those languages who don't handle arrays and parallelism properly.
  • When I program in Perl, I wonder how all those other languages live without regular expressions and CPAN and DWIM.
  • When I program in Lisp, I dismiss anyone who doesn't think macros are like sliced bread.
  • When I program in Scheme, I sneer at anyone who can't write a compiler for their language of choice.
  • When I program in Haskell, I wonder how anyone could think static typing was anything other than the "Right Thing "
...and yet I somehow manage to use each of those languages in one way or another. Go figure.
