Welcome back, conanite! I was coincidentally just thinking about you yesterday when I ran across your bug report at http://arclanguage.org/item?id=10485. Too bad that bug is still open in both Arc 3.1 and Anarki. I think I will try to fix it now that I've spotted it.

1. Oh, the clean implementation of classic Lambda Calculus syntax is awesome.

2. Your string interpolation implementation is just begging for an injection attack proof of concept :)

3. Why bother with continuations?!! Them's fighting words :)

1. Thank you! I figured arc could have gone a lot further with special-syntax, by making it configurable inside arc code.

2. this "open source" has had only two eyeballs on it so far ... attacks welcome :)

3. The execution stack is entirely plagiarised from rainbow so it should not be hard to re-implement continuations in the same manner ... the need hasn't arisen yet though ...
