  • "why Algol-like languages are far superior to Perl".

    I thought Perl is an Algol-like language. It's been ages since I heard the term "Algol-like", but I always took it to mean syntax mostly like C or Algol, with blocks with statements inside, as opposed to very different syntaxes like Lisp or Forth, or the mush that is COBOL syntax.

    • I've always thought Pascal more Algol-like than C style languages. I guess Java is like Algol [] to the same degree that English is like Latin, that is after you drink several beers and squint.
