“I don’t know whether Monty Python ever wrote a gag on programming languages, but if they did, this Erlang video must be it. The funniest thing is that it is pretty serious, and does a great job showing one of my most cherished abilities when using dynamic languages, namely, adding new functionality to a running system on the fly. As for the Monty Python bit, well, you have to see the to know what i mean: i kept laughing out loud during most of its twelve minutes (those Ericsson engineers seem to be taken from The Larch, but then maybe it’s just my sense of humor).”
“Prolog is a logic programming language. It is a general purpose language, which is especially associated with artificial intelligence and computational linguistics. It consists of a purely logical language, which might be called “pure Prolog,” and a concrete langauge, which augments pure Prolog with a number of extralogical features.” (from Wikipedia).
Some things Omadeon says regarding Prolog:
“The ultimate high programmer productivity programming language (for some tasks) is Prolog.”
“Could a reason for this be, apart from habit and convention, that Prolog programming makes programmers think more independently, more logically, more openly?”
