Euphoria

Posted 17 April 2009 - 12:47 AM

I was just thinking of odd programming languages I've come across over the years. Sphere and freebasic come into my mind, but by far, the one that was the weirdest and one I don't see used at all was Euphoria. I was just curious if anyone else had heard of, seen or used this language before. Surely at least one other person has, I mean after all, "it's more powerful than c++!" (Disclaimer: Taken from their own words, Definitely don't agree)

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

The language doesn't look impressive at all. It's biggest pro is that it can be translated to C. I'd rather just write the code in C. Also, if those are the oddest languages you've seen you must not look very hard. Check out esoteric languages and functional programming languages. The esoteric languages /are/ odd, but functional programming languages just /seem/ odd.

EDIT: I apologize, it seems you are well versed in functional programming judging by your post in "What Is Your Favorite Programming Language?". But esoteric languages still stand.

I don't consider the functional languages odd. They're fairly well known and useful. I meant languages, such as euphoria, that seem to be widely unknown and unused.

To an outsider functional languages could be considered odd. Euphoria is pretty well known, but very uncared about.

Heard of it, but never really been tempted to use it.

That's because they're scared.

What!? I can use clojure and open a msgbox in java without having a using statement? NO.FREAKING.WAY...DEVIL!

:P

Euphoria.... Now there's a blast from the past. I played around with it way back in 2000. I remember because it was one of the first languages I tried to learn after finishing college. I honestly don't remember anything about it other than that I liked it at the time (though I'd only been coding for a couple of years at that point, so I was too inexperienced to know the difference anyway). I haven't looked at it since, because, as you say, it's largely unused and hence totally unmarketable. If I want to learn a new language, I figure my time would be better spent on something that can actually enhance my chances of getting a job.

Not always. If you have the spare time, and already have a Job, languages like Clojure and Scala that have little in the way of Job offerings, but lot's in the way of awesomeness are always a good and mind-opening choice of languages to learn. Euphoria offers none of the awesome mind-expanding goodness that functional programming offers and none of the Jobs that languages like Java have available. Euphoria was a good idea but a dead end.

He's just butthurt because he doesn't have Clojure to liven up his daily activities.

Dude...you're so far up Clojure's ass that it's coughing you up.

Get off the Clojure high horse. It's annoying as hell.

Can we please not start with that? Clojure is clojure, C++ is C++, language x is language x. Each has its own particular specialty and is better suited for some things then others. Python has advantages over C++ in some things, C++ has advantages over Python, language x has advantages over language y depending on situation. So really, to all of you (Locke and Raynes), stop insulting each other over a programming language.

Me and ccubed were joking around about Clojure. Mind your own business. I think I'm entitled to the right to mention Clojure when someone asks about a new language to learn, or asks about Clojure specifically. WolfCoder pretty much demanded I learn Java day before yesterday, does that mean he needs to get off his high horse? Do I even need to mention PsychoCoder's Microsoft and .NET advocacy? I was simply joking around. Stop it.
