# Tangent: Syntax reworking

344 views

I'm looking to do a little reworking in the Tangent syntax, parser and compiler. Right now there's a little too many exceptional cases. The main candidates for removal are properties and indexers. They'll still exist, but will be done in the phrase style. No more special cases.

The first step is done. I took the degenerate case where a method has no parameters, and made that a simple getter:

public static    pi => decimal { return( 3.141592 ); }

Setters will look a little odd, but similar to other phrase definitions:

public class SetExample{    private int _foo;    public     Foo = (int value) => void{        _foo = value;    }}

The behavior of each isn't really going to change, just consolidating the syntax and compiler a bit.

There are no comments to display.
