I’m a 47-year old retired software developer who spends some, but way too little, time on working on my new programming language called Braceless. I have dreamed of making a new programming language ever since the tender age of 11 years, when I first learned to program in ZX BASIC and Z80 assembler.
I love everything related to the design and implementation of programming languages and am always on the look for new programming language features.
I personally see Exception Handling as the most important language feature as it is tedious to simulate and it does bring great reliability to most software projects in my experience. Unfortunately, it seems, to me, some recent languages are abandoning Exception Handling for reasons I don’t understand.
I have written a tiny, but old, article on Exception Handling in C that I hoped would eventually affect the C language standard, but not knowing anybody in the standard body makes this virtually impossible.
I am very happy that Federico has decided to start a forum as the Internet has long needed a good place where people with interest in programming languages and compilers can hang out and hopefully exchange experiences and knowledge.
Feel free to contact me if I can help or you have ideas or criticism for Braceless
