comment Why are scientific programming languages so weird?
@jk. I am suspicious, that when C was invented, it was specially made unconvenient, to divide the IT pro from the wide public.

comment Why are scientific programming languages so weird?
@jk. I started from Fortran sometimes. So, for me it was strange, too, that what worked in most weak computers, suddenly was hard for more powerful ones. But I am not a system programmer and can't have any argumentation of my own in this question.

comment Why are scientific programming languages so weird?
@RoryHunter yes, thank you. I wonder, how "inconvenient" for the QA would be SNOBOL or APL. The problem is that for most of programmers the convenience of the user is irrelevant. Even when the user is another programmer. And they do not understand, why somebody makes SW that is up to user's standards instead of being up to to IT standards.

@Aqwis Answer for your own words. What is weird and not. A thing that is set from the babyhood and by maths (natural numbers do not include zero), can not be weird from any side. And what contradicts with it, IS weird. And that you have accustomed to something else, is irrelevant. These languages simply are not made for you or me.

comment Why are scientific programming languages so weird?
I agree almost with everything, except p.3. Scientists do not make their languages, they ORDER them. They are clients, users, but not their creators. If somebody is, he/she is already an IT geek. And syntax of any language is questionable, no one is ideal for all tasks.

@Aqwis Oh, yes, I already see the baby counting zero, one, two... The most natural way, really.

@gnat Should we really repeat the question in the answer?

DAO loads data from DB and CREATES instances of Entity. It is EXACTLY the answer for the question.
