Static Typing Where Possible, Dynamic Typing When Needed
Lambda the Ultimate points to a paper called "Static Typing Where Possible, Dynamic Typing When Needed" by Erik Meijer and Peter Drayton that I find somewhat scary. It describes many importants parts of Eek's type system. But it also includes a few thing I do not agree with, like the prototype inheritance and lazy evaluation sections.


This blog is my dumping ground for thoughts and ideas about Eek. Someday Eek will be a programming language and system, somewhat comparable to Java in scope. It is my attempt to bring sanity to the world of computing.
At least I hope so. Right now it is far from being finished and I can't guarantee that it ever will be. I am still working on the specification, but I won't release anything before I got my first prototype running. The world does not need more vapourware and unusable beta-software. All publicly available information about Eek is contained in this blog. You can find the latest summary here.
