in reply to Freshman Programming
in thread Perl and Python

I didn't said I'd use Perl in a freshmen class. I said I'd use Python. In my opinion, having a language (like Python) that provides linguistic constructs to use high-level data structures helps students to learn how to solve a problem, rather than learn how to write a solution. To do this, there'll be a lot of time.

p.s. I realized using English to express my ideas is a huge effort. I always see a gap between what I think and what I write :( Please be patience (and a bit imaginative).
