  • So Michael... Read a lot of your comments today on js, including the thread about 'include'. Are programmers literal-minded or what? I've recently discovered javascript, and I am so charmed by its elegance as a language. I'm an old Lisp fan, but a long-time C/C++ programmer, so... I'm writing a javascript-to-C++ translator. For fun, and as a way to understand javascript. The idea is to use the local C++ compiler as a backend, link to a JS runtime, and be able to get a native .exe (on Windows), so I can do tools and hacks in a language I like and respect. Obviously I'll have to add an I/O system. (I was thinking of something like stdio ;-)
    The Konfabulator http://www.konfabulator.com/info [konfabulator.com] guys have an include function in their javascript dialect, and what looks like a very slick way to import COM objects. So all in all, javascript seems to me (and I am just starting out) like a sweet way to cook up useful applications quickly. Am I insane?
