I meant in the sense that the language designers feel no need or
interest in making an effort to make such applications possible or
convenient. C++ explicitly aims to provide direct access to the system
internals; Perl explicitly aims to make it easy to glue up system
utilities into compact scripts. Java and Python, respectively, are not
very concerned about facilitating such applications.
