20:42 shortcircuit Anyone know of any programming languages with context-free grammar?
20:43 shortcircuit In particular, a discussion is cropping up where I am about Perligata, and how Latin allows you to order words just about however you like, because its being an inflected language.
20:44 shortcircuit She's not sure that Perligata would be that practical to program in, but I'd like to be able to point to a slightly denser language with similar context-free features.
20:45 shortcircuit OTOH, my fiancee may be getting a notable bit of her understanding of Perl from a Latin code filter...
21:37 sorear I do not think context-free means what you think it does
21:37 sorear most languages in common use have (mostly) context-free grammars
21:38 sorear that's all yacc can parse
21:40 parsleyfirefly what we were talking about was that programming languages are dependent on word order, so a = b means something different than b = a
21:40 parsleyfirefly as a very basic example
21:40 parsleyfirefly which is how English works
21:40 parsleyfirefly but not some other languages, like Latin

21:47 Mathnerd314 joined #rosettacode
21:54 opticron so you'd get something like
21:54 Mathnerd314 left #rosettacode
21:54 opticron = a.rvalue b.lvalue
21:54 opticron and it wouldn't matter what order they'r ein
21:55 opticron does parameter order in a function call count as context in this cas?
21:55 opticron e
21:59 parsleyfirefly Well, that's not something traditionally expressed by case, but it does loosely tie in to our general way of looking at grammar.
21:59 parsleyfirefly anyway, i'm heading out for a bit
