@jslade, > C++ replacement with a REPL

Have you tried Root's CINT? I've never got around taking a look but it's on my backlog of things to tinker with.

No. That's not what I meant anyway. I mean something along the lines of a "high level, yet fast executing systems programming language with a REPL." I'm imagining F# to be an example of this, at least for CLR.

thanks for comments. for me using clojure and leiningen on the JVM some of the points go away, and i don't happen to care that much about hardcore-numerics, i focus more on fitting pieces together than computation per say. add in the eco-system of available stuff and it's the least bad environment i've settled down with. i can't seem to get used to windows platform so CLR is non-option, and c++ would be totally the wrong tool for my tasks. was just curious, no more thread-jack from me.

pretty sold on C# now for my purposes. Is C# old?

Define old. It's younger than you. Smiley

C# is mature. You don't want a programming language that's 2 years young. Who knows what the adoption will look like.

There's been some buzz going around, I think I'll defer looking at it until there is actually something concrete to examine. Looking at languages from a theoretical point of view I find largely pointless. At least 70% of the usefulness of a language comes from the tools, the libraries and the community that supports it.

In this (The Early History of F#) paper, Don Syme mentions presenting F# to CS, BOFA and Morgan Stanley back in 2007. 10+ years later, did anything come of those projects?
