1. About (what i would like to do for) the future of Euphoria

Since I'm allergic to Python, Ruby, C++, Java... and read PHP code makes me sick (what a delicate health isn't it?)... I'm trying to use alternative techs, as Euphoria, commercially.

If my business thrives, I'm thinking of:

  • using part of my paid time to refactor/rewrite/debug the interpreter/compiler/binder/library;
  • release part of the source-code I'm already using in production under a free license.

The truth is that I have almost nothing working to contribute at the moment... So at the moment I can only express my feelings cry

Sounds like a good project to work on it. I like Euphoria a lot, but it does have its limitations. I also don't like working in Python or Java, Lua and C++ are fine to me though. I probably use Euphoria and C++ the most.

Off-topic formatting tip: remember to include a tilde '~' to escape the plusplus '++' code, which is meant to indicate addition like this, so 'C~++' becomes 'C++'.

Do you use C++ to complement Euphoria or vice versa? And what are the most important Euphoria deficiencies on your view? What do you miss most about Euphoria?

EDIT: I mean, as a technology, not as a community.

(Some languages never become mainstream... Euphoria can do it, I'm sure!)

I use C++ quite a bit. I do like that you can call C routines from Euphoria. I think if Euphoria had some sorta struct/class concept, it would be better. Structs really help, especially when you're game programming. I still use Euphoria occasionlly. Also, if Euphoria had a struct function, it would make wrapping C libraries even easier.

I often use Euphoria to wrap or program multimedia applications, such as games. One thing I'd like to do is wrap Monogame, however Monogame is written in C# and lies on top of the .NET framework. I'm sure there could be a way to wrap these functions with a lot of work, which would defeat the purpose of making a simple wrapper. In case anyone was wondering Monogame is the successor to Microsoft's XNA. XNA was a game development library aimed at allowing for the easy creation of video games.
