I feel these discussions just continue to churn and also remain in the exploratory phase.

Not sure continually clarifying semantics helps the cause here either. Introducing flowery terms is something we've all experienced in life. Eventually I'm sure we do become critical about them.

My short solution there is "show me versus wow me with descriptions".

I like to see an application which employs this language. When someone says, "Here, look! I've developed an application by the use of this language!, it's <link=here> on GitHub!", I may actually download it and try it, and especially if it runs on a common platform where I can run a VM for and try it out.

You've posted your email a few times. Not my call here, but that's unseemly in my humble opinion.
You've posted a link to your "store" a few times. Also unseemly, and not a site "I" plan to visit.
You've posted a link to your PDF description document, a few times. Great. Of course, said link appears to be continually broken.
Having read former posts of this language design, it didn't seem to make any sense or be any better alternative than existing languages today, in fact it seemed to be an unclear backwards step.

Perhaps the most potentially helpful step is that you've posted a GitHub repo link.

So I just went there:
The readme is woefully inadequate, it is a title and conjecture that someone "might" need windows to unsplit the file(s), and that's about it.
The remaining files comprise this bunch of gsd files, per disk, and an EXE file, where I am entirely not interested with trying that out.

I feel it would be far better to include the PDF description file in that repo and provide documentation.

Also, as I've said above, it would instead be beneficial to develop a common application, using your new language, on a common platform, and distribution.

For instance a Raspberry Pi, running a common distribution, you have install packages to provide your language, and the associated interpreters or whatever support files it requires, and then code an actual project to demonstrate that the language works.

I feel from that point you'd at least have a launching pad to add more complexity and examples and you also may find that you'd have external proponents who might be interested in supporting your language.
I'm just not seeing a convincing set of arguments here supporting this language.

You're also not making it easy, or obvious for me to give it a look.

Suggest you change that, otherwise this very lengthy project which you've been working on for years, may all be for non.

The first "big" goal using this language is itself in itself. As for the gsd files, as soon as I learn more about GitHub, which I will do with another thread or place, I'm almost ready to post the next version of it. Function parameters now work, in my latest development version. So as soon as function return values work properly, I'm ready for the next version of my language. Then, I can get rid of the gsd files and replace them with simple, clean zip files which should also unzip with gzip I think. The learning comes in because I would like to leave the gsd files for previous versions and add the zip files for the current version, if I can... Just wanted this thread to tell where the language is going, though some steps will take years maybe.

P.S. - I was meaning to invent the concept of "super language". That's why until mine will, I say that I know of none yet.

What can I say? ibid.

Part of the reason I displayed this thread, and also decided to make the most part of the project GPL, is because I might need some help here or there with parts. Most projects in the past that have had this many bugs to debug, I have ended up abandoning. But this is worth it, and also I'm learning to do things in a more professional way. I have fixed a lot of bugs already. Except for a few key bugs, it's probably bug free, or at least the bugs don't prevent it from working all the time. Not to exactly be taken literally, just don't know how else to say it. One more bug to functions in the language! (I already have subroutines, but functions are different.) Not quite the same difference as Visual Basic.

And I will show you. This thread is meant to be just a discussion of where it's going, but now I've posted where it's currently at. I work on this all the time, and I will show you step by step.

I guess, for it's development, I would have to say that the next "most reasonable" step, after some further though, would be to have as many features as the C language, or at least a language comparable to it. On it's way there. Then I can develop 1 real app before going back to development. Probably a simple language as a proof of concept. Maybe then, I can rewrite the list component in my language, making it the first real program.

The list component takes a file and outputs a line numbered file.

I will update this readme at some point. Common app - addressed in previous post.
