  • Use perl. Use ocaml. Use C. These were all designed by people with actual
    problems to solve. (well, okay, ocaml does have some degree of silly
    academicness to it . . . :)

    Java and C# are silly corporate-PR-hyped things.

    For what application would either Java or C# be better than one of {perl, ocaml,
    C}?

        perl: super-compact notation (perl -pe is the super-sed)
        ocaml: speed, correctness, quite compact notation
        C: total control, no surprises from the compiler
