Sorry to resurrect a threat that lived so long ago, but I thought this
study might be of use to Devin (although it is not specifically
focusing on Livecode, it does contrast the productivity of scripting
languages with compiled languages).
Since the report is from an academic enviornment, it might be quite
appropriate for Devin's students.
