As someone with a Math & CS BA this sort of statement amazes me... javascript, 
java, C, C++, etc, etc are all standard imperative languages. All decent CS 
students should be able to pick up such a language with at most a few days.

I think inform is also an imperative language but have not looked at it 
recently. Practically all CS students also know how to use a functional 
programming language as well an imperative one. Would I be wrong in thinking 
you do not have a degree level computer science qualifiction?

FYI I have used CSP in anger. Attempting to blind me with formal methods is 
likely to fail completely.
