  • I recently discovered a most interesting "DSL".

    Like a few other database, you can embed functions into Oracle SQL.

    The strange part for me is that you can describe those functions right there in the syntax.

    So the Oracle SQL parser embeds what is essentially an Ada parser in it as well (Oracle PL/SQL is a form of Ada).

    Curious stuff.
  • Okay, so Perl hasn't been a domain specific language since at least version 5, but that "Practical Extraction and Reporting Language" gives you a clue that it started out that way.

    So he has a point, just a very out of date one.
