Quite - nor should programming languages be ambiguous. Indeed, for them to be useful at all they need to be entirely unambiguous.

I've always said that what facinates developers so much about computers is that it is a microcosm of predictability. In the real world you can do everything right and have it turn out oh, so wrong. Not with software development. When the wolves of reality have us cowering amidst the bushes of uncertainty, (wow that was really good!) we can always run to our brick houses of Software Development. If something goes wrong, it's our fault, plain and simple. But we can still fix it! What's not to love about that?? ;-)
