If they're written in Java, maybe.
It appears to have been implemented in some ksh versions in 1988. My Bolsky/Korn ksh book says "This feature is not available on all versions of the 11/16/88 version of ksh."
GNU AWK uses the same syntax.
And btw, I notice that, with 99 comments in, nobody else has bothered to actually provide you with the links to the official Apple iOS developers or Android developers docs, api, tools, etc. I at least showed enough respect for you to expect you to benefit from them. Was I wrong? Only time will tell.
You know, if he can't use Google he's really bad off.
Back in 1990 if you were an experienced C developer and hadn't looked seriously at OO languages it was understandable. In 2014, if you haven't at least dabbled with C++, Java or C# I think it shows a definite unwillingness to learn. So that's why the OP is getting "condescending" answers like "just hire someone"
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
You don't know Apple, or iOS developers. Dominant over ObjC within two years (and by the end of next year that prediction will probably seem ridiculously conservative).
Oh really? Drink some more koolaid. Remember how long it took to lay Carbon to rest. And the Cocoa APIs are still incomplete in many areas. Then take a look back at all the new programming languages and frameworks Apple has introduced over the years and then shot in the head. Dylan? OpenDoc?
I'd say it's 50/50 whether or not Swift will get enough traction to continue on.
No such thing. Don't ever grow up - adulthood is highly overrated.
If you've spent this long avoiding modern languages why start now? If you're not interested in object oriented design you're just going to spend your whole time cussing at the frameworks. Just hire a contractor.
So does Indian Mars look anything like American Mars?
No, because that's Bennett Haselton's job.
That's my question. I've wound up with it installed plenty of times because it's the default on too many distributions but use?
At least with terminals you could arrange them how you like. Ah, the joys of 3 VT100s on your desk.
