Subject: Re: What is the most "Elegant" Language? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1997/09/21 Newsgroups: comp.lang.c,comp.lang.c++,comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.misc,comp.lang.prolog,comp.lang.scheme Message-ID: <email@example.com> [somebody asks for the most elegant language] * Jeffrey C. Dege | I've recently invented a language that appears to be simpler and more | expressive than any I've seen so far. It contains no variables, no | functions, and only one statement: "do_what_i_want". Every program, | no matter how complicated, when translated into my new language, | is represented by this one statement. you call _that_ elegant? underline in the middle of variable names is ugly, _real_ ugly. `do-what-i-want' would be vastly more elegant. #\Erik -- see http://www.naggum.no/emacs/ for Emacs-20-related material.
