RobC pretty much doesn't listen to what people want. Many really good folks 
have left this language because, while it has potential as a growing language, 
it has no potential when following RobC's "vision". The "vision" has no room 
for things not already there. We haveto jump thru a lot of hoops sometimes 
to make things work, hoops which are simply not there in other languages. 
The bright star of Eu is sequences, but nearly everything else about the 
language must be re-written by each new coder until they can find something 
in the archives that might work.

I don't blame you. PureBasic has all the things Bliss/Bach has, plus all the 
many things people here have requested from RDS, and more! I wonder if i 
can go back to life without sequences.....

But what about execution speed?
PureBasic doesn't run on plain dos, but does run on Amigas,, hmm.
