I'm working on modernizing Rosetta Code's infrastructure. Starting with communications. Please accept this time-limited open invite to RC's Slack.. --Michael Mol (talk) 20:59, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

This is a time sink I need to be wary of, I'm naturally polyglot. Once hung SIOD off a C++ app as macro language. Near as I can tell, Snobol/icon are the only 'write only languages' I haven't coded in. And let's not mention DEC FOCAL. As to COBOL, I corrected two GF's survery-of-languages homework using 1401 manual and cargo culted two lines for pay 30 yrs ago on a DEC10. Day job has some but I don't touch it.

I am hoping Perl 6 will let me combine my favorite aspects of Prolog, APL/J, with the Lisp/AWK fusion that is enlightened Perl 5 .
