in reply to Ancient Philosophy And Programming Languages

And what do we make of the fact that a language such as Perl is written in C...? That would suggest that a pure Platonic language cannot exist without an Arisotelian world to build from.

    I would reply like this and I may be wrong on this point. As long as the language is completely self-hosting, this should not be a problem. The language would be able to compile itself and avoid the whole problem. Now Perl may be a Platonic language run by an Arisotelian world because of its reliance on C.
