But what about nonbelievers in language classification by generation?
As already mentioned you can write algorithms in Haskell (3GL), embed
a DSL in it and write a program in that DSL or in several DSLs (4GL).
AFAIK Mathematica is not a logic programming language, thus all its
features can be implemented in Haskell as library, will be Haskell a 5GL
in this case?
