comment Data structure theory based on graph rewriting
@mkennedy thanks, unfortunately, there's a technical difficulty for me to order from therm... but that aside, this book is older then I am, and I want to believe that the ideas expressed in it lived and evolved. So I'd rather search for something newer.

Ha, good call. In the time of interwebs... I think I've not been to a library in ages. Just didn't occur to me, but is a valid point :)

No, what you write so far is completely irrelevant to my response. Please go write somewhere else.

@AllonGuralnek You didn't read the article, did you? Why do you insist on talking about anon types. I never said anything about it :|

blogs.msdn.com/b/mcsuksoldev/archive/2010/02/04/… although the pagination looks raw, it gives you a walk-through, step by step to how to create classes using reflection, at run time, from a class description.

Allon - you are wrong :) First of all, there's no reason why compiler couldn't do it (this is exactly what compiler does in Common Lisp for example), secondly, this is not what happens in C# - the classes are literally created at run time. This is the feature of the runtime.

comment What functionality does dynamic typing allow?
I didn't say it's necessary. OP has asked for the case when it may be useful - this is one such case. I didn't try to cover all cases. V8 creates "blueprints" (types) dynamically and creates objects using those blueprints. this actually allows you to have type errors in JavaScript (if you really want that)! But this is not the feature of the language - true. And, oops, re 100^10. That would be C(100*10, 100), still a very large number :)
