in thread A comparison of Perl vs. JavaScript -- a reference table.

Did he mention Perl?

I'm also asking because Perl lacks Lisp'ish macros - pretty much like JS does.

OTOH is his regex syntax based on Perl 4, so he probably didn't know Perl 5 and features like private vars, anonymous subs and closures, are just a Co evolution.

( not sure if typecasting of primitive types is Lisp'ish, elisp is no good role model)

    He didn't. In fact, no one at the conference did :-( But I was able to submit some patches to a Perl project during a boring presentation.

    map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
