  • Don't you think a lot of that is probably frustration due to being unfamiliar with how things are done in this new environment?

    It does look interesting at first glance, in any case. Thanks for the pointer.

      Well, just looking at the Hello World program, I see nothing at all that even remotely peeks my interest. It looks like just more of the same old cruft.

      Perhaps the rest of the language is more interesting, but I don't see any of that here.
      • You don't want Oz as a general purpose language. Its no good at that. You want it because it has nice ergonomics for constraint solving, parallelizing execution across computers, or perhaps something about it being a data-flow driven language.

        Perl isn't good at any of those. I don't know ofa nice thunking layer between Perl and Oz so maybe I'd want to just use Perl's glue-language capabilities to write Oz code and scrape the output as it came back.

        I'm a rank Oz novice though.
