A single command language that could be suitable for use in a shell, in
GDB for programming debugging commands, in a program like @code{awk}, in

of confusion. We are stuck with maintaining compatibility with Unix in
our shell, @code{awk}, and @code{bc}, but nothing prevents us from
having alternative programs using our new, uniform language. This would
make GNU far better for new users. Talk with @code{lord@@cygnus.com} if
