Pyret looks very promising. Keep on the good work!

But please remove the minus sign from identifiers! I am concerned that people may abstain from Pyret for this simple reason. It is really annoying to embrace every operator with blanks. That should be an optional job for the IDE to increase readibility.

By the way, is there already a raco exe for Pyret?

Thanks for the encouragement. You can indeed run it using raco pyret ....

We're sticking with the identifier syntax for now. We've written a lot of code in Pyret over the course of 9-12 months and we really like it. My guess is that people will only notice it if someone points it out (only one person on HN noticed, and even that was to ask how it could work). Most folks will just get on with the job at hand.
