Went around in a loop in two days, ended back at Julia by happenstance while looking up something else on programming languages. Stopped off at Eiffel (pure OOP), Ampersand (for relational algebra – ie: defining business rules – has great promise) — both of which feature “Design by Contract” whereby it’s true if it’s law or rather, it’s true because the Contract says so or rather, the client says it’s true). But man look at this beautiful feature: Quickly looking up how a number is actually stored in bits. Since I’m on a 64-bit system, you can see what that darn floating-point (the decimal) does to a beautiful integer): It makes it HUUUUGE.
