That's cool, never heard of chuck before. Did it inspire you to create Gwion?


I created Gwion because chuck is too slow (e.g.: it doesn't have a proper VM, using indirections instead), so slow I couldn't take my work to the complexity it deserved.
I also missed C/C++ features, like function pointers, templating.
Then I tried Haskell and added tuples, and I'm in the process of implementing pattern matching.

Thanks for your interest.
