Monkey

March 16, 2008 Pivotal Labs

The next programming language I invent shall be named monkey. And instead of objects it will have patches.

POP, patch oriented programming.

In fact, all of the primitives will be built by reopening primitives.
For example, to make the primitive 2, you start with 1, then patch 1 to act like 2.

Out of this, the whole of arithmetic is built. and so on for the most complex of programs.
