<arjanb>so java annoyance are one of the reason to try Nice02:20
<bonniot>arjanb: yes. conforts me in the current discussion. it's important not to depart too much from Java when we can, so that people are motivated to get the benefits without the fear/pain to need to learn a brand new language02:54
<arjanb>though it helps to get people started, i think we shouldn't look at java anymore for design decissions02:59
<bonniot>it doesn't hurt to look ;-)03:00
my philosophy was never to copy blindly whatever Java does. just not to change something unless there is a good reason to
<arjanb>i think it's a good idea to start the manual and tutorial with methods/dispatch instead of classes03:21
<bonniot>yep03:22
<arjanb>and Nice shouldn't be called an object-oriented language
<bonniot>what should it be called?03:24
<arjanb>a multi-paradigm language maybe?03:26
<bonniot>yes. it's mostly OO (multi-method flavoured) and functional, though03:30
that's object-functional
oh well...
good night
<arjanb>good night

Put some valid (if misleading) value as SourceFile of generated classes
to make some tools happy. The real info is in SourceDebugExtension anyway.

<Bluelive>lot of people seem to have some troubles with the OO questions ?21:21
<bonniot>the term OO is not well defined. and yes, the quasi-monopoly of single-dispatch does not help23:13
