How to structure the article[edit]

How about these main headlines:

  • design principles
  • interactivity
  • syntax differences from POSIX

Design principles would be very short, whereas the latter two would have subsections, divided thematically, approximately like the comment grouping in today's Translation table section. The current Syntax section's comments would be converted to prose. I feel this text could also say something about the problems it solves, or refer back to relevant design principles. The translation table would be chopped into tables in each subsection, with the comment column merged into the prose. (talk) 23:18, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Handy cheatsheet[edit] covers a lot of the functionality concisely. II | (t - c) 09:42, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
