Me[edit]

My real name is Dennis Furey. I've done a programming language project called Ursala and have posted some examples here. Many thanks for your interest.

The other languages on this site that I admire are J and Haskell. I hope to learn more about J and copy some ideas from it.

I like using C for anything that can't or shouldn't be done with functional programming. I learned Pascal while at school (that's how old I am) but wouldn't use it now because leaky abstractions are worse than none at all, unless I had a boss who was a real tough guy and forced me to use it by sticking my head in a toilet. I'm still waiting for a similarly convincing argument for object orientation.
