I have a developed a 'chart' of programming language constructs that
relate to extensibality. So I suppose one could look at the chat and
see if a construct in each catogory was present.
Here is most (but not all) of the chart: email me for more info.
(this is like my favorite topic)
Data-structures | Control-structures
(pointer) (goto) primitive-level D.S. and C.S.
Array For-loop "AND" constructs
List while / repeat loops
C's unions Case-statement
If-statement "OR" constructs
record/class block Orgiznation/encapulation constructs
---------end of chart
well, as you can see it only defines the completeness of a language in
its terms of extensibility (currently I study ways to define other
aspects of the "completness" of a language)
BTW, what are ya working on?
