in reply to BURL: The Orcish scripting language

Oh dear... you see, this now calls for Quenyan programming language. The parser could use the Unicode Tengwar (has that been put in yet?) for the actual code...

    I wonder if one could use a stroke-order method for writing the tengwar, such as stem + bow and bow + stem. u,w,n,m can be used for the bows, with a prefixed bar for closure? Then there's the puctuation thingies, etc etc...

    I did used to have a perl script that created ASCII tengwar from text input. It worked sort of similar to the old 'banner' command (which I also had a perl script for).

    \/^|-m or whatever.
