One Less Language: Farewell 2iota

Saturday, July 14, 2012

It's not often we get rid of a language here at Cat's Eye Technologies, but it happens occasionally. In fact, it happened today. I decided, some time back, that the languages beta-Juliet and 2iota were simply too similar to be distinct languages; and so, 2iota was absorbed into β-Juliet version 2.0 (which we can spell with the Greek letter now that everybody's got their Unicode boots on, right?) The semantics of the language have also been clarified somewhat (although the reference interpreter still needs to catch up to them in some small ways.)
