A long time nerd who has worked with more systems (embedded, micro, mini, and big iron) and languages than I care to remember, but right now I stay on MacOS X and iOS programming using Objective-C to eat and sleep indoors, and for fun I do Scientific Computing with Python.

comment Is there a performance benefit to using immutable objects in a scripting language?
There are immutable built in objects. I am talking about user defined objects. There is no flag or other method to indicate to the interpreter that the user defined object is immutable thus allowing optimizations to occur.
