The Trouble with High Level Languages

I like it because it saves typing. There was a good example of a 20-line Java program that was reduced to 3 lines in Groovy. I’ve lost the link though. — Script Musings

That’s the problem. Tiny programs are so easy to misplace. The entire corpus of APL programs was practically whipped out back in the 1970s by a high wind. Don’t want to loose things? XML!

    Perhaps we should be thankful! Wouldn’t if be nice
    if old and obsolete code that was never intended for
    anything but one-off applications would magically
    disappear after a period of time!
