    That really isn't sufficient, maybe if you had strict/warnings

      There is just no need for strict/warnings in an aXML system. The code powering aXML needs it sure, but aXML itself due to the way it works can't be used in a manner wherein strict/warnings have any use or relevance.

      I know it's probably hard to understand why that is, even more so for me to describe the reason without a common framework of understanding.

      In aXML you don't deal with code in the same way as your used to, it's a higher level of abstraction. There are no loops or conditionals, just declarations built up using the simple syntax. Looping and branching is handled by the code plugins which give the context to the declarative tags.

      There is no notion of scoping, or localised/global variables, there is no quote operators or logical operators, it's a completely different way of doing things.

      That's why I insist that this represents a paradigm shift , and you can't necessarily apply the same sets of ideas and rules to it, as some of them are just completely irrelevant and/or obsolete.

        being shorter doesn't mitigate typos much, so you need a strict/warnings to warn about typos

        repeating that "paradigm shift" propaganda in every single response is transparent
