The reporting language for a product I used to work on was the wierdest I've ever used although nothing is worse the Malbolge at least not yet.
This reporting language didn't even have a name it was just reporting script but it was unlike anything else, 5 sections to Cobols 4 ( I hope I got that right ) and each one had a different syntax from really readable stuff in one section like ORDER BY CUSTOMER to a bunch of /g style switches in another. It did the job however and the job was a scary one, multi-dimensional database analysis at speeds that would make Larry Ellison Dead | X| with envy.
"The secret of happiness is freedom, and the secret of freedom, courage."
Thucydides (B.C. 460-400)
