Oh, I am quite sure. Looks like Perl6 changed that, but it's because I was never sure that data structure should be a reference to a dictionary of references to scalars, or a dictionary of scalars, or a dictionary of reference to scalars, or a reference to a dictionary of scalars.
Anyway, next time I go for a quick script, I should go for Haskell, not Python, nor Perl (5 or 6, whatever). But I will probably go for Python, because it's painless enough and I don't know Haskell's shell integration by hearth. Anyway I will go for Haskell before I try Perl6, what is a nice measure of the problem they have to get mainstream again, because the language varies, but I'm far from the only person thinking this way.
I've started using rust for short scripting tasks, helps me get acquainted with the stdlib & ecosystem, and `cargo script` works really neatly, seamlessly allowing adding dependencies to a single-file script with not issue. Plus if you want to scale the script out to a proper project you can just take and promote the generated cargo project.
Haskell does have a good REPL and being able to distribute a binary when finished is really nice.
Is one of those assumptions wrong? Can you state why it's wrong?
Or do I need to adjust my sarcasm detector?
But not, Haskell and Prolog are still leaders here, with Haskell currently having the lead.
It's basically the reason the next language I'll try on the shell is Haskell. But it takes looking at the documentation, so I'll leave it to try when I'm not in a rush. For shell scripting, that may take a long time.
