Mathematica 11 is a very powerful programming language sold by Wolfram
Research.  Wolfram Research calls it "the word's definitive system for
modern technical computing".  I agree.  See
for more information about Purdue's site license for "teaching and
non-commercial research".  It is installed on many computers at Purdue now.

Perl 6 is a very powerful programming language that was a complete
redesign of Perl 5 from the ground up but still feels like Perl 5.  Perl
has been called "the glue of the Internet" because of all the the things
it does.  See
for more information about Perl 6.  I've used Perl 6 and like it better
than Perl 5.  Perl is a general purpose programming language that is
especially good at text processing.  Get the software for free from
