Let's see: You can't statically analyse a dynamic language. (Ig)Nobel award materiale if ever I heard it.


Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    I don't think the fact that Perl is dynamic has anything to do with it. Lisp (of any dialect) is a dynamic language and is trivially easy to parse. The grammar of the language and its type system are two entirely different things.

[Corion]: Meh. I'm reviving some old code, and it seems it used a module DBIx::Loader, but it doesn't exist on CPAN, and I can't even remember writing such a module... Maybe parts of it live on in DBIx::RunSQL, but not the parts I need right now :)
