Subject: Re: Is there a useful distinction between "programming" and "scripting" languages? From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 20 Sep 2002 08:17:43 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Erann Gat | It's interesting how many people answered a different question from the one | I actually asked. The question many people are answering in this thread is: | "Is there a distinction between scrtiping languages and programming | languages (and if so what is it)?" But the question I posed was "Is there a | USEFUL distinction?" I believe most people would want to know what the distinctions are before they judge them useful or not. A priori usefulness tend not to exist, so the obvious answer to the question is "no" /before/ one does careful study. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
