Also we are actively seeking further acquisitions. I have written
directly to a number of language authors, however I'm quite likely to
miss many. Therefore, could language authors please check and
write to hopl DOT acquisitions AT gmail DOT com with new material or
with updates to existing material.

In both cases please respond according to the following headings (see
the entries for AmbientTalk etc at as an example)

* Required
Email address *

Name of language *

Name/s of designer/s, developer/s *

Email address of submitter *

Country of origin *
The country in which the language was developed

Main website for language *

Year language development began *

Year language published *
The year the language was made publicly available for use

Known influences on language design *

What other languages influenced the development of this language

Description of language *

Peer-reviewed publications (journals or conference papers)

On-line documentation link/s

Historical notes

Other notes of interest related to language development, contact with
other developers etc.

HOPL language classification
See HOPL's "Polychotomous key for the classification of programming

Approximate size and composition of user community Does a community of
language users exist? How many are there, approximately? What kind of
people/companies/institutions use the language?

Thanks in advance,
Bruce Axtens, Librarian
