revised When is an API considered to be an embedded DSL?
tailored question to be more specific to embedded DSLs since other DSLs (markup, data) are not much like APIs

So then aren't all projects their own DSL when they are just about done (i.e. general programming languages are eventually DSLs)? A continuum of sorts from general to domain specific.

comment When is an API considered to be an embedded DSL?
As a commenter pointed out, I must have only considered embedded DSLs. Consider something like Forth where one builds a dictionary of words. I've read that as building a DSL as one gets close to having a feature complete application but it seems a lot like an API.

So perhaps one could make a thing that parses a string (DSL) that acts as a simple wrapper for a large API. I suppose the separation of the DSL from the thing that parses the DSL is the differentiation.

comment When is an API considered to be an embedded DSL?
I suppose what I want to know/understand is how are API and DSLs differentiated. I put complex in there because I figure that when one is constantly making calls to an API then it is rather domain specific, or at least that's how I originally thought about it.

So where can I actually see the nitty gritty of how some of the STL containers work?
