I'm programming a lot i C/AL (The programming language of Navision) -
C/AL is a "Domain Specific Language" - Its designed to work inside
Navision - it has exactly the functions needed to do whats to deisgned
to do. The runtime environment (OS/Network/hardware etc..) is completly
shielded from the programmer who only have to think in
business-processes and business-data.
The preface to "Programming in Lua" states that "many people regard
Lua not as a language, but as a kit for building domain-specific
languages". Fair enough, but what does that mean in practice? What
usage of Lua qualifies as "domain specific language"? Does anyone have
a concrete example of using Lua for such purpose?
That means, that I can hire people who knows a lot about business and
teach them this simple language and they are ready.
