No need to take offense: none was intended.  Of course, there are _many_ fine
programming languages out there (and Perl, too <wink>), and I bet (beware:
assumption ahead!) that most folks here speak at least three.  Also, I bet C is
widely found among those.  (Heck, they even teach C in _college_ nowadays!)
