Hello Ian,

These scripting languages were not developed at W3C and are not
W3C Recommendations. 

You might want to look up some of the them on the Web to learn about
their history. For example, you might find some useful information
about Perl at Larry Wall's site:
 http://www.wall.org/~larry/perl.html
