What programming language are you?
At first I kept getting all different answers:
Java (YRAINW), LISP (ow), Perl (w00t!), FORTRAN (hurgh!)

Then I realized I'd given the wrong answer right off the bat!
To paraphrase mrowe's sig recombined with Qui-Gon Jinn's words, the ability to pee standing up does not make you intelligent. And so we have it:

You are... C++!

                       #include <fstream.h>

                       enum Bottle { BeerBottle };

                       class Shelf {
                           unsigned BottlesLeft;
                       public:
                           Shelf( unsigned bottlesbought )
                               : BottlesLeft( bottlesbought )
                               {}
                           void TakeOneDown()
                               {
                               if (!BottlesLeft)
                                   throw BeerBottle;
                               BottlesLeft--;
                               }
                           operator int () { return BottlesLeft; }
                           };

                       int main( int, char ** )
                           {
                           Shelf Beer(99);
                           try {
                               for (;;) {
                                   char *plural = (int)Beer !=1 ? "s" : "";
                                   cout << (int)Beer << " bottle" << plural
                                        << " of beer on the wall," << endl;
                                   cout << (int)Beer << " bottle" << plural
                                        << " of beer," << endl;
                                   Beer.TakeOneDown();
                                   cout << "Take one down, pass it around," << endl;
                                   plural = (int)Beer !=1 ? "s":"";
                                   cout << (int)Beer << " bottle" << plural
                                        << " of beer on the wall." << endl;
                                   }
                               }
                           catch ( Bottle ) {
                               cout << "Go to the store and buy some more," << endl;
                               cout << "99 bottles of beer on the wall." << endl;
                               }
                           return 0;
                           }


What programming language are you?

Oh, and yes, I took it with what looked like the SML answers. I got Haskell. Bha.

Like, what kind?
PDP-11?
80x86? (Norton 0wnz0rs your @$$!)
Or something more exotic?

Acorn RISC OS?
Mm... or perhaps Transmeta Raptor...

Never rilly tried any fortran. All I played with at university was the stuff Matlab is written in (got a MSci in chem for that) and Simula.

I am Prolog.

I was pretty good friends in college with the person who wrote that. She's kind of obsessed by Haskell. In the sense that she thinks it's the only language worth using. SML apparently makes her very angry.

Woah! Praise you with great praise!

How (non-)strict of her.
I used to work in functional programming for a type theorist, so I know where she's coming from.

Re: Praise!
It's from a web comic that ended a few years ago called "Exploitation Now", which was probably at exploitationnow.com but I honestly don't remember. A friend of mine made the icon when she created the journal and told me to use it so I would stop leaving anonymous comments in her journal.

The Cliffs N00ts
Language: Perl
And are you?

The irony is that Perl itself is a subset of UNIX features condensed into a quick-and-dirty scripting language. In a literary light, if UNIX is the Great Novel, Perl is the Cliffs Notes.

Re: The Cliffs N00ts
Language: Perl
And are you?
Here's the answers I sent to the quiz:
Which would you rather have: multiple inheritance
Do you eschew obfuscation?: Bring it on! "Power through obscurity" is my motto.
What's your take on side effecting operations?: We don't need no steeenking side effects!
Describe one of your typical users.: American AI researcher
You're most useful for: Running a business
You're most likely to run on: Unix workstations
Are you more likely to be: a little of both [compiled vs. interpreted]
Do you have a rigorously defined semantics?: No
If you were an animal, what would you be?: a small ferret that runs around biting your ankles [should be a Eurasian badger, of course...but they're both Mustelidae]
Which of the following words describe you best?: slow and secure
Your worst characteristic is: your lack of type-safety
Your best characteristic is: your mathematical soundness
I don't believe the Fleisch-Kincaid level of 9th grade for my LJ, though.
What do you believe it should be?
Post-graduate. One of the LJ'ers I recently mutually-added noted that much of my LJ is beyond him.

However, I do revise intensively before posting, with an eye towards eliminating tangents and refactoring sentences towards simple from compound-complex. Just about everything I post/comment has been redrafted at least twice.

Ayn Rand's writing style is very influential on my own; in my better moments, I try to revise like she does. Imagine the 1000+ page Atlas Shrugged before she cut it down from 3000+ pages.

Actually, I'm more surprised no one took that LJ nick before you did, esp. for a community!
