Not disputing that. I was just commenting that usually it is used as scripts
in a web development environment where there are php being written for the
web anyway. With that in mind, I think it is fair that most of the examples
you find out there are in python, perl and bash etc. However, as I said in
the mail, once one knows all the information to write a script, he or she is
free to write it in any language.
