So, this post was originally just talking about neat features (and ommissions) for non-programmers needing a scripting language.
I kept mulling it over, and with input from friends and colleagues started getting an idea for a language, schlub, together. This post represents a grabbag of the current ideas behind the language.
I think it’d be better served with example programs, but I haven’t written those up quite yet. It’s messy, weird, and hopefully useful. Let me know what you think!
Edit: And yes, in some ways, good chunks of this language are deliberately bad. I think that kicking the search space over by a few whacks into the realm of seeming crazy can yield interesting results.
