heres the script in python ( 2.1 ) ;

def f(num):
    if num <= 1: return num
    return f(num-1) + f(num-2)

print f(25)

which gives;

real    0m0.738s
user    0m0.710s
sys     0m0.030s

compared to 

real    0m1.031s
user    0m1.030s
sys     0m0.000s

for the perl ( 5.6.1 debian woody ) on my system.

I didn't expect that.
