I really like this language. Finish the specs soon please! poiuy_qwert 07:48, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm glad somebody likes it :) I'll post some more examples. Afarnen 19:14, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

This looks like a complicated and powerful language. Because the variables rely on each other in that way, it should be reasonably easy to compile this to Prolog, and might save you some of the trouble of trying to evaluate the complicated expressions in the interpreter. --Revcompgeek 03:42, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Python Implementation?

This is too awesome. I'm going to try writing a Python interpreter for what you've described thus far!-- 23:19, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Really? That'd be great, keep in mind, this page might change over time, as I continue my work on it, as it is in pretty early stages. However, if I do make any changes, it will not drastically change how the language works. I say go for it! If you ever have any questions or need help, just ask.

I assume that if you perform maths on a variable with more than one value it will be performed on each value separately and recombined? If so, the Sqrt function can return 2 values and then there is no need for the +- in the Quad function. This would be really cool. --Sphen lee 06:56, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

You're exactly right. I'll make the change Afarnen 22:38, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Language Rewritten

Hope you like it. It keeps most of the same principles, adds some new ones. One thing I took out was variables having infinite amount of values. It wasn't really necessary to have. --(this comment by Afarnen at 15:48, 21 February 2008 UTC; please sign your comments with ~~~~)


Why has the article just been blanked??? -- Smjg 09:35, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

I'd suggest unblanking the article, unless the author gives an explanation. It's a good idea for a language, and even if the language's author doesn't want to work on it any longer, someone else might pick it up. --ais523 10:11, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
I agree. Moreover, just blanking the page is very inefficient as a way of telling us that the project has been abandoned, whether it has or not. -- Smjg 12:59, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
I thought nobody had any interest in this project anymore. Also, I kind of started another idea for a programming language, so kind of gave up on this idea. But I cleaned up the language a little, and wrote up an overview. Afarnen 07:05, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
But as ais523 said, it's a good idea for a language. Why are you so against anybody taking your idea, developing it further and/or trying to implement it? And in any case, please don't just blank pages like that. -- Smjg 14:20, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
