in thread pissed off about functional programming

So you're saying Lisp, Perl, and Javascript don't support functions as first class values? Or maybe you're claiming that higher-order functions aren't commonly used in those languages?

No. I'm claiming that none of those languages would normally be called a functional language in the same category as O'Caml, Haskell, etc. - which was what I thought we were talking about.
