I came across I think it was a wikipedia article, about a Soviet programming language that was characterized as being "like lisp", but it used a different data structure than lists (strings maybe?). I don't remember the name and now I can't find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Encoding all your data into strings sounds insane. How would that even work?
I'm guessing it was like lisp but used a different syntax not a different data structure. And I'm guessing the main difference was Cyrillic alphabet - not because of some kind of linguistic patriotism or whatever but purely for practical purposes because of the keyboard layout.

Strings being a base atomic type is not the same as strings being structures.

>>12405
That's an encoding of data external to the program, which then has to parse it into its own internal structure.
From your link:
>JSON is a data encoding and transfer format which has nested structures and arrays, but ultimately builds structure out of string to string mappings.
Here again we have strings as atoms, not as structures. The mapping itself is not "stringly-typed".

You missed the point of the article. Try reading it again, this time trying to understand it instead of nitpicking.
