in reply to Re: MINI LANGUAGES SUCK
in thread the disadvantages of mini-languages

Forgot to add a feature that the end user needs? In either of the above cases, they still need to come back to you to add it.
And how if functionality extended in a mini-language versus a general purpose language? Read the quote by Dominus above carefully before answering.
