   RE: [xml-dev] XML-aware programming language?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Lisp can do this (or rather, anything that meets these criteria becomes a Lisp).

But no-one uses Lisps much, quite possibly because the layers (domain specific language, macro language, object system, lower level functions, compiler etc.) are unified - there's no context clue as to which layer
   (onetuh ahnout aouhtn oaunht)
is in without knowing enough about the layers of the system to locate 'onetuh'.

The multi-paradigm/layer nature of such beasts adds to the knowledge cost of large teams, and may also indicate that a similar context issue will effect net based systems. In my experience, the more capability and levels a language provides, the less accessible it is.
