> Natural language is fuzzy, messy, ambiguous, obscure, and nearly
infinitely flexible. That makes it wonderful for conversation, jokes, wordplay, romance, and puns, but terrible for precision (as in treaties, contracts, or program specifications). Have you read Larry Wall's position on natural languages and computer languages (Programming Perl, Chapter1: an Overview of Perl, Natural and Artificial Languages)? This messiness and obscurity has created a very popular language. This language also uses zero-based arrays and requires holding down the [shift] key alot when coding. Don't mind me, I've been mentally mutilated from a previous language. ;) - Michael
