San specification revisions - January 1, 2008

This page describes the January 1, 2008 revisions to the San programming language specification. There are some new features, the most significant being "pronouns" and the infinite range of dimensioning. There are a number of clarifications of obscure passages, and the correction of some outright errors.

Each revision description consists of a informal description of the original text, an informal description of the new text including motivation, and a listing of altered, delelted, and new sections.
