comment Which popular object-oriented languages support readonly methods?
Do you really have to explicitly declare trivial getters, that only return a simple attribute value?

Oh yes, now I remember const :-) Sorry for the stupid question, sometimes you just do not find the right term for a concept in your mind.

Lua tables are different to JavaScript Objects: In JavaScript {} is not [], in Lua you have {} for both. Lua tables better compare to lists in Lisp.

comment Can you name some pattern matching languages for non-strings?
Looks like this could also be used to express some patterns in JSON (without the getter/setter pattern)... Oh, there already is goessner.net/articles/JsonPath which looks the same :-)

Well, my question aimed at exact matches of patterns in formal languages ("pattern matching"). I would call the examples you name "pattern recognition". If the data to match against is fuzzy or noise, pattern recognition is surely is more appropriate - but the "language" used for this will most likely be a programming language. Pattern matching languages should better be decidable. Thanks to your input I found another relevant question: stackoverflow.com/questions/315340/…

Very good. Do you know of libraries that bind these elements of a function language to another host language? Regular expressions can be used this way in any other language, so it should be able to do similar with functional patterns.
