Re^3: Perl can do it, take 1 (sentence generation)by BrowserUk (Pope)

Like I said, probably a step too far, but I was trying to stay true to the Lisp original. If the intent is to completely Perlify the algorithm, then you probably wouldn't use the listp() abstraction (and it certainly wouldn't be called that:).
The nearest I could get is the nested ternaries.
I also tried to code the cond macro, and got pretty close. It follows all the right paths, but implementing rewrite is much harder, and the values don't filter up without that.

"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
The "good enough" maybe good enough for the now, and perfection maybe unobtainable, but that should not preclude us from striving for perfection, when time, circumstance or desire allow.
