> Nice, very nice.


Yes, very, very intriguing.


I bought a copy of CAL-3036 and its a "minor work of genius", its a great
"toy" (BTW I call Java and Java VM a toy).


CAL-3036 "understands" a limited subset of English, you have to know
how to say things and you have to know how to think within its
"mindset". You have to be a programmer to be able to program it as it
does not understand most normal English statements, having said that I
would have loved it as a teenager. It would be a great present for
kids who are learning to program.


As a "scripting" language within applications it would be really good
for power users.


The compiler is "Meta" and is written in itself, everything needed to
use and port it are includeed within it. All its tools are written in
its "English". It can manipulate and communicate with the binary level
and with Windows API.

I am 100% sure it has no virus or trojan. It scans clean using McAfee.
It does however want internet access to download some pictures it uses from
Google Images.
