ok, well, once bitten...
AMOS really is an impressive feat for one man, i must admit, hats off to Francois for such a comprehensive product. Rather too comprehensive, i might add. So many features i never found a use for in all my years of using it.
i do intend to write my own language at some point, and i intend to make a library for it to assist migration of projects from AMOS. if any of that ever happens, you are of course welcome to that source code, too. but i'm still umming and ahhing over the syntax. for about 8 years.
