Yes, that must be it. Do you really think they did not try to get their good old BASIC interpreters to perform a little better 35 years ago when memory and CPU were a little more limited than now? Your 'modern´interpreters are just as wasteful and a pain to work with as the old ones and no optimization short of turning them into compilers will make it any better.

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

This is Javascript. If you put big wheels and a racing stripe on a golf cart, it's still a f***ing golf cart.

"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
