Question


Ok I followed you banner ad about this Euphoria prog language, anyone knows what's that and if it's any good, which language does it use, for what I understood is like a Visual language, so it's easier than languages such as Java and cpp!

End User Programming with Hierarchical Objects for Robust Interpreted Applications

I will admit that I have never heard of this programming language. My opinion before using it? It looks kind of interesting, but I am not convinced of it usefulness. They keep saying that it is easier to learn than BASIC and most of the programs written in euphoria seem to reflect it. Then there is the "For programs over 300 statements, a run-time error in this Public Domain Edition will simply cause your program to halt with a brief message". That means unless you pay you can only write a 300 line program. I am downloading the language as I type, I'll let you know what I think after using it.

For those of you interested the wbsite is http://www.rapideuphoria.com/

Update

Well after using the language for a little bit my opinion remains pretty much the same. It is very similar to BASIC and is very easy to learn BUT with free powerful scripting languages like perl, python and even php I would find it hard to recommend spending a lot of time learning euphoria. If I play with it a little more and change my mind I'll let you know.
