Prothon

Tuesday 30 March 2004

Prothon is a derivative of Python using prototypes rather than inheritance as the basis for its object orientation. Prototype-based languages seem powerful and intuitive, more so than inheritance-based languages. I’m not sure why they aren’t used more. Also, Prothon fixes a few of my main annoyances with Python, especially the ubiquitous self variable, although it does it with dangerously Perl-like prefixes.
