XL Design Objectives

Some of the key objectives for XL are:

  1. Easy to read. Observations have shown that code is read several times more often than it is written.
  2. Easy to write. Making code easy to read should not come at the expense of the programmers writing it.
  3. Simple. Only what is necessary to achieve the objectives belongs to the language.
  4. Powerful. Programmers need power tools, not gimmicky toys.
  5. Extensible. Programmers, not language designers, know best what tools they need.

The last objective is so important that it gives its name to the language.

Welcome to XL

XL is a new programming language for modern programming needs.
