OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.2. The OpenBSD 5.2 release page has a detailed list of all changes and improvements. As always, I would love for someone to write proper items about OpenBSD releases - it's outside my interests and cursory glances don't do it justice.

:O really?

That is a severe design issue!!! Similar to the translated commands in Excel. That madness does not make any sense!

I cannot imagine a program written in a Spanish-translated C. It would be something like:

#incluir <esest.e> //stdio.h [translated to Spanish] -> .e from 'encabezado'

ent principal() //int = integer; ent = entero
{
car const* cad = "Hola mundo";
imprimirf("%c\n", cad); //%c writes 'cadenas', i.e. 'strings';
retornar 0;
}

Very spooky, actually!

There was a little Spanish C
A real language it thought it'd be
It wasn't sharp or incremental
But in all objectivity
Why not a little Spanish C

Think about it though: if C had actually been designed this way, it likely wouldn't have taken all these decades for OSs to support Unicode properly ;)

I wouldn't want to deal with Finno-Ugric code though...

Regrettably, ctrl+f of all major and some minor (Sami especially always seems one nice little language & people) Finno-Ugric languages in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-English-based_programming_language... didn't come up with anything. :/

However, you might be even more interested in 丙正正 (Chinese C++), Farsi.NET, HPL, Dolittle (some Japanese edu language, charming name ;) ...personal note here: Fjölnir name sounds kinda epic), or var'aq (Klingon...)

And that's even before getting into "Languages based on symbols instead of keywords" or "Modifiable parser syntax" ...Klingon Perl? As if Perl alone wasn't enough? ;)


PS. Generally, quite many French ones, what about that? ;p
And OMZ, GOTO++?! If that's what I think it is, it could be... brilliant ;)
But seriously, with relative prevalence of Chinese on that list, one might wonder if that's not a song of things to come in ~computing...

PPS. Overall, why specifically not Finno-Ugric?...
