Exactly.  Java borrows from C/C++ a great deal, and they tend to look
similar overall, but they are totally different languages.

PHP and Perl are much easier to learn if you already knew the other one
fairly well, but the differences are vast.  After learning at least the
basics of seven languages, I'm ready to suggest we make one universal one :)
