False. I can't write such code in MATLAB, for example.

I'm not a fan:

• Case-sensitive exports seem wonky to me
• Interfaces rather than variant types [but not interfaces per se] are weak
• Member selection is in some cases cumbersome, in which it would not
be in C, which is related to ¬(variant types)

Mind, my experience is little, and this is merely what I found writing
a λ-calculus interpreter in Go.
