We've taken your feedback to heart and will be putting effort into
significantly improving our comparisons. (It obviously doesn't help to put
up "straw men.")
To that end, I would very much appreciate contributions from the community.
If you have code samples in other languages that you feel would be good
illustrations of how revTalk can be shorter and/or more readable, please
either post them to the list or mail directly to me -- bill.marriott (at)
We're especially interested in :
- ActionScript (Flash)
and to a lesser extent
- Visual Basic
If you are able to replicate the functionality with a revTalk example, all
the better. Try to focus your efforts on real-world tasks, classic
programming challenges, things everyone building software can relate to. And
of course, areas where revTalk really shines.
While it won't be the same as getting "recognized experts" [in those other
languages] to produce the examples, I know there's a wealth of knowledge
here in the use-list and am hoping you'll contribute some sterling examples.
Thanks very much,
