The fact that it is closer to C (with respect to the cycle: write - compile - link - test) instead of being interpreted, is not so important to me.
That explains a lot, so it's like Lattice C reskinned with a basic like syntax.
Anyway, jokes aside if that's what people like, have at it. It's unfortunate such a GEM like app doesn't work correctly under mint. The supplied GEM toolbox and the updated one called Enchant also have issues under mint. I stopped using single tasking TOS a long time ago, it cripples my work flow, but that's me. HB2 manuals can be found at devdocs if anyone is looking for them.
