though I have rarely seen such a pompous and pretentious approach:
Our mission is to provide our customers with the best scripting language environment for their computing needs.
and though in my simplicity I ignored that I have been dealing for years with clusters of metacharacters :
and that there were actually lots of people having day-to-day programming tasks and were actually handling them in C or other conventional programming language :
Similar to symbolic mnemonic forms of lower level assembly languages, special meanings for clusters of metacharacters in MS-DOS/Unix shells are difficult to remember.
Most users treat these MS-DOS/Unix shells as command interpreters; their day-to-day programming tasks are handled in C or other conventional programming languages.
The actual vision is good :
Script computing is the future.
The programming paradigm has shifted from non-portable, domain specific programming to portable and rapid application development, from proprietary languages to open languages and from system programming languages to scripting languages.
This paradigm shift has created the following needs and market opportunity:
- a cross-platform scripting language meeting most programming needs;
- a highly interactive development system without lengthy compile/link/execute/debug cycles;
- a joint interpreter/compiler system for mission critical applications;
- a platform for rapid application development, running in different operating systems and devices, safely and dynamically through network.
Let's go java!
A nice example of:
Ch makes hard things easy and easy things easier.
Time of day in 24-hour hh:mm
ch prompt: `date +%k:%M`
But, once removed all the self-incensing bull§#|t (and I have rarely seen so much of it all together) the thingy seems very nice.
- I have my brain too cluttered by the difficulty of having to remember special meanings of clusters of metacharacters I learned in the past
- I won't test anything I cannot talk about:
