Scripting languages are great for making programming accessible to people just trying to automate basic tasks on their computers, playing with data. Programming should be useful to people who don't know big O notation and algorithms.

btw if you interact with this and then say you hate Emacs, you're a hypocrite :P (gotcha)

@thufie what if i told you that you can hate emacs and love scripting?

@somarasu name an environment with more scripting capabilities and flexibility and I will grant you an exemption

@thufie you dont have to grant me a thing.

also im not naming one b/c i dont care; what i'm gonna do *INSTEAD* is get drunk
