I’ve always wondered why they’ve been chucked together.

Isn’t it much more convenient to separate them as two separate languages, with distinct sets of keywords, text clips, and separate tools.

Probably because excluding a small handfull of c++ identifiers (some of which actually have other meanings in C anyway), the keywords would be a copy. That and the time to maintain 2 schemas – and the supporting file types the languages share anyway.

I think I said it before sometime, PN rocks!
