There are currently five questions tagged , but I am not sure that it really adds anything. How do others see it?

Seems to me that most of the things currently tagged with system fall under "Core language" questions. With the symbol tag, I agree that system doesn't really add anything. Core-language might be a better classification and more meaningful than symbol however.


If we can come up with a better tag, I'm all for it. I originally created to cover low-level sorts of questions. Contexts and symbol naming, the kernel parser, evaluator, assignment etc...

Andy's [core-langauge] is one possibility, although that implies syntax to me for some reason.

How about [core-kernel]?

(I'm also not sure whether we need . For the most part I think we're shying away from individual functions, although I expect there will be exceptions for things like Manipulate and NDSolve.)


I have a third alternative: . It doesn't imply syntax, and highlights that we mean the core components of mma.

  • +1 - this is a good suggestion. Unfortunately not all things people would tag as system should be tagged as system-core. – Verbeia Jan 21 '12 at 1:47
