Honestly, it sounds like TCL would be a better basis for what you want
to do than Python. Tcl's syntax is (a) prefix-based, like your example,
and (b) extremely, extremely consistent.

Subject: [Jython-dev] simplifying the syntax
I have been asked to create a simple scripting language which will
accept command such as:
foo 1 2 abc
Ideally I would like to use Jython to utilise all its feature and to
call other Java objects which=20
will also be used.
However, in Jython you would need to write a function called foo and you
would then enter the parameters using the syntax:
The software users really want the syntax to be as simple as possible.
Is there currently, or will there be, anyway to get around this by
altering the Jython syntax. This could be done in Python using the
LazyPython (or IPython) hack, but I must use Jython to be=20
compatible with my legacy Java classes.
Any ideas? Or any plans for the future?
