Aldor is a computer language.
I just popped upstairs the the 14th floor to grab a cup of very bad coffee. I was playing around with the new devel nodlet and I was thinking to myself, wow contibuting to
everything by adding a cool feature would be really cool.
Like a page that gave a distribution of the votes
on each of your nodes or something like that.
I tought that I might be able to do this in python
but definitly not in pearl. Someone has written rxb.py,
an extension that allows for a natural language description
of a pattern matching request. It's verbose
but easy to use. Perl is short but obtuse. So I thought
right that little project will have to go by the wayside,
and perhaps some day I should learn pearl, then I thought
fuck it no, the future of computer languages has to be the way of natural language. Computers are supposed to do the graft, right?, which brings me to Aldor.
Aldor is A Language for
Describing Objects and their Relationships. It is very easy to create your own types, a hilbert space, for example
or a conjugate gradient solver. The code is very high level
and almost reads like English. I don't really know that much about it, but I feel that the future lies in this direction.
