Object Orientation

Continuing previous discussion years ago about Buttons and convenience of using OO for GUI programs, I think a Object Orientation is mostly a syntax mask for something relational going on underneath the hood that people never acknowledged. Take for example a button in SQL: INSERT INTO button (color)...

Re: Button1, and depressing thoughts about complexity,elegance

I think possibly that a compiler plug in, or interpreter plug in might be a way to work the problem out. Take an existing compiler, or language, and plug in industrial D (embed it right in the code using some special comment escape system or similar) /* START INDUSTRIAL D .... .... END INDUSTRIAL D ...

Re: Organize code into a procedure

I love the feeling of n00b in the beginning stages of exploring a new language. I feel this great Aha moment now - as so far I have been using Rel just like a scripting tool without putting ANY of my algorithms in procedures. Now I can start programming seriously, finally. I wondered why your Bottle...

For example in current Object Oriented languages ...

Examples section

It would be a good addition to the website to show some examples of simple applications and demos. ... like say organizing some addresses with city, name, country, etc. in a relvar and then showing how to access this data and display it with writeln() and what cool things one can do where SQL sucks ...
