Remind your professor of LISP, the AI language, in which it all  
happened. LISP is a frog with a trunk attached to a snout with a neck  
like a giraffe and a shell like a turtle. Perhaps he'll remember  
seeing such a beast. There is always the option of asking your  
professor to let you choose your favorite language. Around here, I  
know at least one of those :-) -- Matthias
