17:50 tyrok mikemol: I'd like to suggest a language: Dialplan
17:51 mikemol Pretty domain-specific, and designed for a specific operating environment. It'd have to be compared to other languages designed to operate in the same environment.
17:51 mikemol I highly recommend "Asterisk: The Definitive Guide" as a reference. Also, you can use Lua in place of Dialplan, if you like.
17:52 mikemol s/designed to operate/capable of operating/
18:47 eMBee i see your dialplan and i raise with sendmail
18:47 * mikemol checks his dialplan's permissions.
18:47 mikemol How you do that?
18:48 mikemol Actually, a lot of basic functions of Dialplan could still be demonstrated as language-general tasks, so it's not too much of a stretch.
18:49 mikemol I just hope I don't see anyone try to implement, e.g. quicksort...
18:49 tyrok IIRC most of the mathematical tasks could be implemented in Dialplan.
18:49 mikemol Test the limits of recursion. :P
18:50 mikemol IIRC, there's no actual stack, so there's no limit to recursion.
18:51 eMBee how do i do what? raise with sendmail?
18:52 mikemol How'd you see my dialplan. :P
18:52 eMBee lol
18:56 * eMBee would not mind seein dialplan on rc, would give him a chance to improve his asterisk skills
18:56 eMBee seeing
19:02 mikemol Then add it. :)
19:05 * eMBee routes the call to tyrok
19:25 * mikemol intercepts, routes to opticron.
20:19 kpreid_ joined #rosettacode
21:10 * opticron looks around
21:10 opticron heh...dialplan
21:11 opticron AEL is more like a real programming language, but no one uses it because dialplan is too entrenched
21:12 opticron and there are various other call routing interfaces
21:12 opticron ugh...chan_sip is gross
21:14 opticron over 30KLoC in a single file and includes at least 3 different ascii text parsers
