[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

It seems there is an amply sufficiency of little languages that lack 
rigour. That is, you don't need to declare variables, the name space 
is polluted, there is no const correctness, type coercion all over 
the place, etc. There is an existing heavyweight language that has 
most of these features, i.e. Java.

Maybe lua should be the little lightweight language that supports 
rigour in programming. That is, decare vaiables, parameters can be 
const, no explicit casting.

Other than that, a higher speed array type (integer only index).
