Does anyone actually use it?
Quicksort was an example of something simple, that wouldn't be very efficient to implement using a non-text language.
Anyway, kids nowadays with their fancy languages and 800MB frameworks. They have a ".sort()" routine built in and immediately think that anyone writing those 10 lines to suit their specific situation is doing something deeply wrong.
Just try to write a quicksort routine using any non-text-based programming language.
Or try to describe a 10 line shell script using UML.
You'll find out that text-based code is actually quite efficient.
'heroin" is called "heroine" in Dutch, but I actually do recommend using both.
I've heard that heroine is also very good at masking problems.
Both written in Pascal, with some Assembler. It's still quite readable for software from that time.
Organs sound too 60's for my taste.
