Term from BillSeitz for WikiMarkup and other easy to enter Ascii formats.
Transcluded from SmartAsciiAsProgrammingLanguage
Add some recursive function calling to a text file and you have a FunctionalProgramming language?
(Maybe compare SubText)
Or maybe WikiTalk is it.
SeanMcGrath tries to dismiss the program / data distinction in favour of text : http://www.propylon.com/news/ctoarticles/codedata030311.html
Perhaps this is how we should revisit the problem - by revisiting the very notion of text in our computer systems. What if every text editor on the planet was a folding text editor that could seamlessly transclude text from one location into another?
With such a capability we could manage code and data separately, but by simply opening up a different 'view' on them, see them as a merged entity consisting of both code and data. Best of both worlds?
