Per your objections:
: (1) Eliminating statements from the language to create an expression only language is MORONIC! It is done only because you are too lazy to write a REAL compiler.
K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid). Why allow statements and expressions when expressions only allows anything anywhere syntactically? The semantics are the only issue the developer should worry about.
Imagine nesting multiple concepts in a single expression. The expression is a process and should allow more efficient code.
: (2) Garbage elimination is a waste of proc time. Lose it.
Garbage collection is well defended by Johnathan. He proposed it, sold it to me and it is now an optional feature turned on and off by the compiler language.
: (3) Dividing the language into a compiler and algorithmic language may allow you modularity, but it is an over complication of the matter.
To the contrary, division of the language allows the two to grow separately. Therefore, the language should last into the future.
: (4) CBOOP is too late. Good idea...But it should have been implemented a decade ago. You missed the boat and the industry has moved on. How will you get the initiative to shift the industry in your direction?
You are almost correct! It's late but not too late.
: (5) Your former partner, D.P., told you to take the money and run.... You do not post that here now. You spend too much time theorizing on this language and compiler. Had you written it years ago, both you and D.P. could have sold out and won. YOUR LOSS!
This is not on topic. But not everything is based on money. Just most of it.
: (6) When are you ever going to post a detailed definition of the new language and CBOOP. If it is to be open-source (and if you are true to your beliefs) then post some real descriptive materials.
I am working on that! Patience is a virtue.
: P.S. ...And I haven't even started on the real technical problems! Do you want me to move further?
To quote Bush: "Bring it on!" ...And I have the (er, privates) to back that statement up!
