It was my first proper programming language (I learnt it when I was
about 17; I'd played with logo and basic on the Amstrad PCW when I was
12 or so, I guess), which may have something to do with my ability to
wring perversity even from Python...

I could cope with C++ if I was the only person on the earth allowed to
write in it, if you see what I mean.
