Proposal: Programming Languages

The reasoning should be obvious. Sometimes, such questions are more-or-less specific to a language or family of languages, but I'm curious if the more general topic would be suitable for this proposed community.

Best way to find out is to ask and see what the community thinks

  • This is what happened when I clicked "discuss this proposal". Is this not asking? – Pseudonym Sep 17 at 13:34
  • @Pseudonym - no, that starts a Meta/Discussion thread about the proposal itself. If you want to ask sample questions: go to the proposal, scroll to the bottom, and add a question under "Propose an example question:" – warren Sep 17 at 16:53
  • But this is a question about the proposal: what's on topic. – Pseudonym Sep 18 at 0:18
  • See, for example: area51.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/32316/… – Pseudonym Sep 18 at 0:22

    @Pseudonym - that's a "bad" meta/discussion question, too: that asker should have just asked an "historical language design" question on the proposal :) – warren Sep 18 at 14:56
  • Cheers, thanks. Clearly, lurking before posting doesn't always work. – Pseudonym Sep 20 at 2:01
