  • That sorta makes sense. But this monstrosity [schemers.org] makes no sense whatsoever.
    • Yeah, I'd rather have a stack and document my gazintas and gazoutas than have whitespace-rules ...

      Mr.Obviousman says -- the Subject is in the stack-language FORTH, of which PostScript is adapted, for "If you love Forth, honk" -- and was a über-geekly topical reply "back in the day" to the ubiquitous "Honk if you love Jesus" bumper stickers.

      If you see linenoise above, it is of course Unicode ♥ aka ♥ and ♥ and ♥ or 0x2665 , which might be a legal subroutine in Unicode aware Perl, if you ensure it's in /\w/ in your locale, but was a legal subroutine name in early PC Forths, such as MMS Forth -- anything but White Space was a legal identifier, although using pure numbers as identifiers would cause a problem, so we didn't do that.
