Gnome "I followed the debate about a successor for the C/C++ combination as the primary language for developing the GNOME core desktop platform very closely last month. There has been discussion about a number of options. What I would like to do on this page is give an overview how a probably less well-known language might be a viable compromise as a C/C++ successor. This language is called Eiffel and exists for over a decade. Eiffel takes the principle of Object-Oriented programming to its extremes and, as a consequence, is a very easy to learn language."

related only by the hierarchal structure of language development.

Syntax can be right, but if the semantics are off, you have a logic error.

"The Dog ran for a touchdown at home plate"

syntactically, that sentence is correct., Semantically, it is gibberish.

That is how syntax is related to semantics.... IE, not very tightly.
