Hi,

Look interesting! Have you seen the "Icon" Language? In my opinion if  
you could implement some of the features from Icon (or "R") into  
TranScript language would open the doors to all kinds of cool stuff.  
The problem with most of these other "cool" languages is that it's  
*REALLY* difficult to implement a reasonable GUI whereas RunRev/ 
TranScript is fantastic at GUI handling but lacks any good pattern  
matching or generation functions.

I have half developed a interface between SNOBOL4 and RunRev which is  
pretty cool and allows you to do some REALLY powerful stuff.

All the Best
Dave
