(Completely OT) - Hero(i)n programming language on Slashdot
A programing language has only one purpose, help us to develop a system using a group of resources that makes abstraction of the OS, Hardware, data structure, IO, modularity, etc...
But I think that this Heron language just uses the worst parts of the syntax of Object-Pascal (Delphi) and C++!
On C/C++ and Delhpi a lot of things could be done automatically by the compiler, and they are missing this again with Heron.
