and are planning on using it for some analytical bits. The only major
issues for us right now are the lack of static compilation and a
"debugger" in a formal sense. The latter isn't as much of an issue,
because, hey, printf anyone?
Its a very cool language.
This said, someone showed me Chapel's progress last year, and I was
amazed at the simplicity and power of it. And while not open (as in
open source), kdb+ is a very nice (extraordinarily powerful) tool that
lots of our customers in finance also use. You can get info on Chapel
here: http://chapel.cray.com/ and download/use the 32 bit version of
kdb+ for free here: http://kx.com/software-download.php
