GeneralAn ideal programming language PinmemberNemanja Trifunovic23-Dec-04 6:45 
There has been a Code Project survey[^] on the features of an "ideal" language, and also several VB vs C# rants in the Lounge recently. That made me think again: how would my favourite language look like?
 
Without any doubt, semantics would be modeled after C++[^]. I simply love its static type system, support for value semantics and multi-paradigm nature. One thing I don't like about C++ is the syntax: in my opinion it is too expressive and unreadable. Even Bjarne Stroustrup admits he would have prefered to use Algol 68-like syntax, but C was much more popular.
 
On the other hand, I like the syntax of Modula-3[^]. Watch this snippet of code:
MODULE MyModule;
 
IMPORT IO;
 
PROCEDURE PrintThing(READONLY r: Thing) = 
  BEGIN
    IO.Put(r.name&"\t");
    IO.PutInt(r.size);
    IO.Put("\n");
  END PrintThing;
 
PROCEDURE MakeThing(n: TEXT; s: INTEGER): Thing =
  BEGIN
    RETURN Thing{n, s};
  END MakeThing;
 
END MyModule.
Even if you've never programmed with Modula-3 (I didn't), the code is readable and logical. Compare
  END MakeThing;
 
END MyModule.
with (Java or C#)
  }
}
However, I don't like Modula-3 semantics: single inheritance, garbage collector on per type basis, no support for type-safe collections, no deterministic finalization.
 
The solution would be: a language with Modula-3 syntax and C++ semantics. Funny enough, some of the most popular languages are quite opposite: C++ syntax and Modula-3 semantics - in my eyes the worst of both worlds.
