    audinue, what you've described is sloppy programming, and probably also poor library interface design, not any inherent problems with the language syntax.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I agree with Prelude - redesigning the language elements to be descriptive, does not change a programmers ability to write bad code - it just changes what the stuff AROUND the code looks like.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
