What Makes a Powerful Programming Language?

vodoolady We've Got Plenty of Languages (1332 comments)

The problem is they don't play well together. I want a tool that uses the information already present in my programs to take out the tedious and error-prone stuff. Why do I have to tell my computer how to map my objects to tables? Why do I have to write so much support code to use CORBA? Why do I have to worry about include paths and library linkage and jar files? Why do I embed javascript in HTML, which is in turn embedded in a string in a script file?
