MPS adoption

minh Says:

after using mps, i found it to be quite complex. although i think it a great idea and quite powerful, i think the learning curve is too large. I think a lot of the features needs to be removed becasue it is quite overwhelming.

if it had a more narrow focus and did it quite well, and then expand, i think it would be much easier to expand and you would be able to change the application based on demands of programmers.

You're kidding, right?

Language design and implementation is one of the most technically

difficult aspects of Computer Science. Formal language theory all by

itself is enough to scare the faint of heart.
