I have just thought about dynamic "Rosetta Code" - some software that generates 
simple code for the target language, compiles it and tests the result.

It might be useful to learn a new language.

For example, in PowerShell, there is some awkward syntax for an array of array 
wherein :


If the preceding comma is omitted, it will not be treated as an array of array.

My idea is to write some simple code in the language one is familiar and let 
the program translate it to some other language, while using Guix to summon the 
necessary compiler for the target language 😄
