    dear Konrad, I am developing a new language. It might be very useful or interesting to you. First, it has the best array notation that I am aware of, and was designed to support a minimum of 10 dimensions, with sparse array support a given. It has many novel features, such as a windowing/graphics API built into the language so that you don’t wrestle with complex API libraries to do simple things like tile a screen, draw tables and graphs, and print. Amazing how so few programs integrate printing, because anything serious sooner or later wants to print. You seem willing to experiment, and I wanted to reach out to you to get your feedback, and get your input before the cement has frozen on the syntax. Just today for example, i was picking the punctuation to be used, and double checked all the keyboards for which keys are available, and discovered that many european keyboards lack commonly used punctuation characters, which must make working in some languages somewhat awkward if you don’t have an editor that does automatic substitutions of some kind. So i am carefully planning alternative syntaxes for each national keyboard.
