What great new thing does Io bring to programming languages that its
inspirations failed to do?
The faq <http://www.iolanguage.com/about/faq/> subjectively measures Io
as the simplest of five other languages, but avoids /objectively
measuring/ its simplicity. The sample code suggests there exists at
least a few keywords, if, for, method.
I also noticed both := and = used for assignment.
After that I was unable to continue looking around. I don't seem able
to get to the website <http://www.iolanguage.com/> any more. Perhaps
the posting here to the newsgroups overwhelmed it?
to read my rants on technology and the finance industry.
