while reading David Flanagan's JavaScript Book yesterday, i realized, that no computer language has math foundation. For example, what's a object? in Java, JavaScript, Python, Perl? what's a function?

one could give a reasonable definition, as did Flanagan rather painstakingly, but that's like 1700s mathematician's concept of real number or limit. Sure, everybody understand it, and 99.99% of the time there's no any problem, but a sound logical definition is lacking.
