Re: [PLUG] Speaking of programming

I recommend python.  It's fairly simple and self-documenting.    Keith 
recommended Perl (I think not in jest), but I found Perl's syntax to be way 
too dense to understand.

If that doesn't suit you then the ballerina route might be the best 
alternative.  ,grin>
