A general and specific synthesis, beyond the langs of choice above, is the design intent of my AI integration of domain space. A general synthesis in the sense that linux instance are the nodes of the OS construct with the full repertoire of programs as available functionality. A specific one in the WFL product where the reference Algol job control level can have bindings for any supported lang, with a healthy selection from the top 10 TIOBE entries.

  2. ;SPO (the Burroughs system operator console, originally acronym for "Supervisory Print Out").
  3. i.e. C/C++ and Algol68.
