Syllable, AtheOS As the Syllable project predicted many years ago, version 3 of the REBOL programming language has finally been open sourced, under the Apache 2 licence (screenshot on Syllable Desktop). Also, the alpha version of the high-level Red programming language, supporting Syllable Desktop, has been released, by now in version 0.3.1 (screenshot, demo program, video at the Science Park in Amsterdam).

That's an interesting idea, which would indeed fit best with common people's experience. The nice thing about REBOL is that it's a meta language: you have control over how the language is evaluated. REBOL makes it easy to write an expression evaluator that would use the rules you stated. I would indeed implement such an evaluator if I would allow users to enter their own expressions, for example in a calculator application.
