Ta.The title is informal, merely an attempt to convey the question - what could/should a programming language "look like" if it were being designed from scratch where the primary area of application is writing software for MCUs both "low end" and "high end".
This covers questions about grammar and semantics as well as specifics about data types and arithmetic as well as interop with other languages, preprocessor capabilities and any number of things deemed relevant by those who write for such devices.
Some interesting things have come up recently in my research, for example fixed point arithmetic is mentioned a lot in posts and blogs and being very helpful in systems with no floating point hardware or systems that work with DSPs.
In read it as a hardware language , such as vhdl or verilog. Hence my confusion.
