Journal: Language demands

Journal by dugeen

What any new language must provide:

- No syntactic significance of identation. White space should only be important in that it separates tokens.

- Multiline if statement with elseif. And 'elseif' must be so spelt.

- Single loop exit statement for all loop types

- Drop-line and block commenting (block comments must be nestable)

- Consistency in library function naming, eg there shouldn't be Net.Tweet.NewMessage and Net.Slashdot.New_Comment

- Mutable strings - none of this String/StringThatActuallyDoesWhatYouWant crip-crap.
