Substitutes "///" for "//"!

But, I get what you're saying. In my own words, every language has its own, little perks - some of which are never re-created in others.

I just added the smiley I should have put in last post.

My example is one I use to remind folks that the '/' is not sacred -- neither in Perl nor in sed. In both cases you can use any character you want: the 1st character after the command letter, usually 's', becomes the delimiter; people typically use '/' out of habit, & possibly because they weren't taught the full capabilities of the programs.

So 's/\/\/\//\/\//' becomes 's,///,/,'.

And what does ${var//\\//} in bash? (Sorry could not resistů)

Oh my, I feel bad for Caml. Don't cry little Caml; I still think strict statically-typed languages are cool.

Maybe this category could get split / truncated next year. When half the entrants (my favorite languages, but oh well) get < 1% of the vote, it's not that enlightening. Of course then there will be tons of complaints about missing options. IMHO it would be more interesting to add a language like JavaScript to the mix and eliminate Scheme than to see Scheme get beat soundly again (which you know will happen). Maybe just keep the first seven entries above, add a few very popular new ones (like JavaScript) and see how close things shake out.

I am very much for including Javascript next year... most web programmers in php, python, ruby, perl, java, c# use js libraries - it will be up to the programmer to wonder if they are doing more in js than in the core language. From my perspective I am increasingly using more js whereas php/py usage is reduced to retrieve data.

Maybe there shd also be a poll for best javascript library - yui, dojo, moo, etc

Something missing in this Members Choice Awards.
Lazarus project must be in the poll and of course FPC (Free Pascal Compiler).

As always, we'll post the nominees and allow suggestions for additions before the start of the polls next year. Thanks for the feedback.
