I want clay, complete freedom, and Perl.

Funny, a few years ago I fantasised about writing a language called Clay. I even came up with a marketing line: "Munging, messing with data has never been so deep, so intense, so different..." (or something like that) :). Clay was supposed to be written on top of or as a second generation of HC (Hygienic Classifier) (I borrowed the term "Hygienic" from Scheme's Hygienic Macros, and "Classifier" had nothing to do with OOP, in fact it was a not at all paradigmatic (paradogmatic?), minimalist, textual, principled and open-ended approach at the thorny problem of classifications).

Maybe some day I'll get myself to rescue the papers, complete the design and write a working implementation of HC and Clay (in Perl, of course). Time, gentlemen, please!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
