[REBOL] Re: OT: Compiler Languages

From: datafeed:gmx at: 4-Jan-2003 16:33

The syntax of OCaml is no worse than C. Both are bad. It's just that people are so accustomed to C that they no longer recognize its objective ugliness. Robert this stuff is WAY, WAY off topic -- but here briefly are some links. D could learn a lot from OCaml. I like them both but D suffers from the deficiencies of C more than anyone cares to admit. It is by design very close to C -- which is a good thing and a bad thing. D is still very pre-alpha while OCaml is into version 3. OCaml is hybrid functional/imperative and you'll find similarities with REBOL on the functional side. OCaml is wicked fast. I hope D incorporates some of its features. Mark
