  • I've been thinking about implementing a _real_ RDBMS in Perl for a while. By real, I mean really relational, as opposed to the godawful crap we see today. This means no SQL, except via a portability layer.

    A good reference for what this would look like is CJ Date & Hugh Darwen's "Third Manifest" book. I don't like the syntax of their Tutorial D language, but that's not a big deal, since they themselves say that their syntax is just one possible implementation of a "valid D" language.
