Might this be better abc (programming language)? Peter Jackson (talk) 10:32, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Theoretically so, but it is used by people who consider themselves to be non-programmers, and they call it 'notation' so I think we should stick with its most common name. This article needs an update; there is a lot of new software out there, and a lot more incompatibility issues, since there is no real standard. It's on my list.Pat Palmer (talk) 14:19, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
I will check on whether there is a way to 'categorize' or list it with programming languages. I don't know of anything else like it though; it is extremely single-purposed.Pat Palmer (talk) 14:21, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
