Why not make the language at least very similar to an existing language? Sure, even if it isnt EXACTLY the same, it at least has a number of people that already write in it, editors that deal with it correctly, etc. Plus you can use general purpose code snippits from such a language, which will help greatly decrease the amount of libraries you will need to make directly before this becomes useful to people.



Well, in my experience, copying & pasting from one language to another one never quite worked - and quite sometimes made it to thedailywtf.com material.


On second thought, it may be a good idea. Thinking about it.
