by earl, 5907 days agoJoe Marshall: "The reason I implemented the [REBOL 1.0] interpreter in explicit continuation-passing-style was not to give the user first-class continuations --- that was a happy coincidence --- but to support tail recursion."
"The other way people get into trouble is exactly the opposite. They believe that C++ should be an extremely high level language, and everything should be object-oriented. They believe that you should do everything by creating a class as part of a class hierarchy with lots of virtual functions. This is the kind of thinking that's reflected in a language like Java for instance, but a lot of things don't fit into class hierarchies. An integer shouldn't be part of a class hierarchy."
