22:03 ClaytonB[RCo] What's your favorite language? In a sentence, why?
22:06 slavik1 joined #rosettacode
22:09 sorear perl, because I've been using it forever and so do my friends
22:10 ClaytonB[RCo] I also love perl. If you had to list a few of the most important things that make perl so wonderful what would they be?
22:10 ClaytonB[RCo] (I'm asking as research for my language I mentioned yesterday)
22:11 ClaytonB[RCo] (and because I like thinking about prog languages in general)
22:11 drguildo your language?
22:14 ClaytonB[RCo] https://github.com/claytonkb/Babel
22:15 ClaytonB[RCo] I want to create an RC page for it but the implementation is pretty immature. The spec is more stable but since I'm still in early stages (9 months coding), I'm still open to spec revisions.
22:19 drguildo neat
22:21 ClaytonB[RCo] Of the languages on RC, the closest relative to Babel is V (sorry, I don't know how to do the wiki-link)
22:22 ClaytonB[RCo] It's an untyped, post-fix stack language with arrays, linked-lists, and hashes
22:22 sorear just brackets, ne?
22:22 sorear [[V]]
22:22 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/V
22:23 ClaytonB[RCo] Like V, Babel is partly inspired by Joy (Manfred von Thun).
22:23 ClaytonB[RCo] Memory management is still not in place, so it's "malloc-only" at the present but I will be adding lexical variables and ref-counting GC later. You will also be able to do stop-and-copy GC as well.
22:24 ClaytonB[RCo] [Joy]
22:25 ClaytonB[RCo] [[Joy]]
22:25 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Joy
22:25 ClaytonB[RCo] hmm
22:25 ClaytonB[RCo] ah there it is
22:47 ClaytonB[RCo] joined #rosettacode
22:58 * TimToady likes Perl because it fits his brain, for some peculiar reason...
23:06 mischi joined #rosettacode
23:07 BenBE joined #rosettacode
23:09 local2 joined #rosettacode
23:09 ClaytonB[RCo] Perl5 is my first love
23:09 ClaytonB[RCo] In the last couple years, though, I've gained a real respect for Lisp
23:12 sorear TimToady: hehehe
23:32 ClaytonB[RCo] OK, I took the dive: [[BabelLanguage]]
