If you could end COVID-19 by sacrificing one programming language, which one would you choose and why is it PHP?


Actually, I think I'd add tcl to my list of languages to sacrifice.

Not used it much but had to because ICEM uses it for its scripting interface, and it's incredibly pedestrian. It's also not debuggable within ICEM, so you're down to running some piece of code, see what happens and then maybe change it... there's not even print statements.

I acknowledge that tcl might actually look better in a proper IDE but I still don't see what it can do that a million other languages could not.
