Except, of course, that Lisp is *not* a functional language at all. <defun> only creates an instance callable by <funcall> [a procedure]. Procedures are not functions.
So what? I can still write code in LISP where I don't have to have assignments, values can be unmodifiable/immutable, etc. Cheers.
Sorry. I'd no intention to chide you in any way. Of course, you're right. I only wanted to counter the wide-spread mischaracterization of Lisp being called a *functional* language. Lisp is no more functional than Perl is...

Actually, there's also the performance myth: low-level languages are more efficient than Lisp. In fact, C is actually at a performance disadvantage to Lisp.

Ada.

It's not the most common or versatile language (I don't see anyone writing games in it) but by Jove, it is great at what it does. Mainly aimed at multithreaded real-time applications. Brilliant stuff.

A F-111 fighter jet simulator used Ada in (at least) the avionics buses. That is the only time I've seen outside of university. A lot of the recent military stuff I've heard about is C and assembler on very modern embedded CPUs. I've never really gotten into Ada. But there is a GNU Ada in nekoware.

I believe most of our air traffic control system software is written in Ada (here in the US). Seen several job postings for Ada programming in that space, even recently with the software modernization program.
