(WOT) CSS(C Style Scripting)?

after seeing this I was wondering how many monks had heard of C Style Scripting and what did they think it was good for. I don't ask this with any preconceived notion as I'd never heard of it. I'm always up for using the best tool for the job and wondered if anyone found this CSS stuff to be the best tool for some job...

just curious =)

    It seems remarkably un-C-like to me. Sure, it has a few syntatical similarities to C like the for and while loops, but so does perl. The C standard library functions aren't there, the ones that are have different names (strlen vs. strLength). The only type is var. You do no memory management at all. The list goes on and on, this is not a C-like language any more than perl is.

    It's also worth noting that the CSS reference states: "Local arrays (e.g. declared within a function) are allocated at runtime and may have variable indexes. This is a unique feature of CSS you won't find in C/C++" This is false, the C99 standard allows for arrays to have a variable index.
