[Haskell-cafe] A Procedural-Functional Language (WIP)

Dear Haskell Cafe Subscribers

on the recommendation of someone for whom I have great respect, I have just
subscribed to this list, it having been suggested as being a good place for
me to get feedback regarding a project that I have been working on.  I am
humbled by the level of discussion and it feels to be a very bold step for
me to request anybody's time for my words.

The linked document is a four-page work-in-progress summary: the length
being stipulated, potential novelty being the other main requirement.
Given the requirements, the summary necessarily glosses over some details
and is not yet, I fear, completely correct.  The conclusion is, more or
less, the one at which I am aiming; the properties are, more or less, the
ones that are needed.


The work arises from an investigation into functional programming syntax
and semantics.  The novelty seems to be there but there is too a question
as to whether it is simply a gimmick.  I try to suggest that it is not but,
by that stage, there have been many assumptions so it is hard to be sure
whether the suggestion is valid.  If anyone has any comments, questions or
suggestions, they would be gratefully received.

Yours sincerely
Rik Howard
