This morning I stumbled upon this interesting article about Cat, a new, smallish stack-oriented programming language developed by Christopher Diggins. Any article that mentions both John Backus and Google MapReduce is sure to grab my attention lately. 🙂
If you have any interest in programming languages in the abstract, you should check out this article. It’s really a great read. Alternatively, visit the language home page at http://www.cat-language.com/.
