  • Syntax doesn't give you readable code for free.

    Hm. Let's test this out.

    • Scheme has uniform syntax.
    • Uniform syntax is trivial to learn, and easy to read.
    • Therefore, if uniform syntax leads to readable code, then Scheme expressions should all be very readable and easy to understand

    Proof:

    ((call/cc call/cc) (call/cc call/cc))

    Hm. I guess uniform syntax doesn't necessarily lead to readable code. :-)
