Syntax for arrays?
I'm a little confuzzled on what my syntax for my language should be. Mainly when it comes to arrays.
I don't know if I want predefined functions, or built in syntax. Like this:
The built in syntax definitely looks shorter, but it doesn't really look clean when you're working with an r-value array:
I personally prefer the built in functions for r-value arrays, but the built in syntax for variables.
So which one should I chose? I can't do both
Totally random, but I barely remembered this.
You might be interested in this piece of knowledge since you're making an interpreted, memory-managed language.
Some random search results:
The concept can be applied to arrays as well as strings.
@DynamicSquid I had already conceptually thought of the idea before, but I guess it already existed, and it had a name, and it was already in use.
I guess my thoughts aren't that original :(
Data structures are weird at times, I've heard of plenty, but there's an infinite more that exist.
