    “ It is better to have 100 functions operate on one data structure than 10 functions on 10 data structures.” – Alan Perlis, 1982

      I’m making something like this. Completely agree with the post. However this is not an easy problem, making a programming language fully confluent is basically impossible right now… However, I believe that having canonical representations and well documented schema’s is the next best thing, so that’s what I’m making.

        What if a simpler programming language had first-class representations of a lot more than strings and arrays?

        REBOL. You’re looking for REBOL. :)
