( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've a list of languages, and that list has no less than four languages called 'Pearl':
  • Constable, Cornell U, 80's. Constructive mathematics.
  • Process and Experiment Automation Real-Time Language. A real-time language for programming process control systems, widely used in Europe. Size and complexity exceeds Ada. DIN 66253 Teil 2, "Programmiersprache PEARL", Beuth-Verlag, Nov. 1980.
  • One of five pedagogical languages based on Markov algorithms, used in "Nonpareil, a Machine Level Machine Independent Language for the study of Semantics", B. Higman, ULICS Intl Report No ICSI 170, U London (1968).
  • Brian Randell, ca 1970. Multilevel language, mentioned in Machine Oriented Higher Level Languages, W. van der Poel, N-H, 1974.

The second one on this list the one you are referring to. Note also that the list I'm referring to dates from January 1995. There may be more Pearls now....

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
