Having "flying hours" in Assembly is a precious thing - it marks one's way of thinking for life with a strong base and steady sight on all kind of nasty problems.
I see your wish for an untainted language, however I am in despair dealing STILL with such basic things as basic memory management (hash, memmem, b-tree) functions. I firmly believe that building programs on rotten ground (slow basic functions) is out-of-style boring and artless dead-end. Call me out-of-date and delusional but I still have strong romantic affinity towards artistic approach in programming - I hate this doomed situation in which we all are trapped now - fast PCs and slow software not exploiting the might given by the technology - I am sure you feel that even better than me having dealt with assemblers. In a few words: it is a crime not to utilize fully the potential of a given processor - this shows sloppy attitude not only toward programming but also toward everything else.
 
I would like to hear from you how do you see one particular task properly get done:
How to rip (down to unique phrases of some order) the whole electronic English language with a C console program (or rather etude). I am talking about my pride-and-joy Leprechaun - the fastest written in C x-gram ripper on the Internet.
 
My point is that out there exist a lot of programming languages but when comes to the most basic things as helping people with natural languages sidekick/statistical/suggestion tools programmers are in debt to users.
Get down get down get down get it on show love and give it up
What are you waiting on?
