⎕NA extension

Postby Davin Church » November 4th, 2018, 11:57 pm

I have a question...

When enhancing ⎕NA to allow .NET assembly access, why did you choose a generic term like "EXT" to define the interface type (in place of the old DLL terminology)? Wouldn't something like ASM or NET be a better (more specific and meaningful) notation? What if you come up with some other external interface type in the future and you can't use EXT to define that one at the same time?

... just a small aside

Brent Hildebrand reminded me to re-read page 38 of the APL64 project document ... http://forum.apl2000.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1235

This is a really exciting feature.

Yes, the terminology in this feature is exactly what I was asking about (and what I mentioned to you early in the other thread). I think the keyword they used might be better in the long-term if they replaced it with a different keyword.
