Different needs, different languages.

I write 100-line scripts in Perl that rip apart text files and extract the bits I want. I don't write 100,000 line embedded systems in Perl.

What about different needs among the users of a same language?

Any language satisfies some needs well (hopefully), and some needs less well, and some other needs badly. Different languages have different sets of needs that they satisfy well.

So, if you're complaining that a language doesn't satisfy a need well, then go find one that satisfies it better. Use that instead.
