       Ooooh, I like. Microsoft, of course, will come out with a proprietary version: BLML (Bruce Lee Markup Language). BLML will not be compatable with JCML.   

       Now we need a KFTP (Kung-Fu Transport Protocol).

       OK then there's DLML (David Lynch markup language)   

       <meaningless eerie closeup>In fact, I'm there right now</meaningless eerie closeup>   

       And SKML (Stanley Kubrick ML)   

       <wide-angle tracking shot>Oh I was cured, all right</wide-angle tracking shot>   

       and perhaps SSML (Steven Spielberg ML)   

       <profound Oscar-worthy denoument>Command is looking for you, son. You're going home</profound Oscar-worthy denoument>

       Sorry, I really don't get this. I must be stupid, but what is the idea.?
arora, May 19 2002

       I don't get it either, [arora].
bristolz, May 19 2002

       I really didn't at first, but /… KFTP (Kung-Fu Transport Protocol)…/ is illuminating of JCML.
reensure, May 20 2002

       Alas, it's not illuminating to me.
bristolz, May 20 2002

       [thumbwax] can correct me if I misspeak, but the idea is for a descriptive language for the martial arts.   

       I think the idea started as a parody or spoof; but if one stretches a bit, one can imagine using such a language to animate avatars, coordinate stunt scenes or a way of describing people (if Jackie Chan can Grab, Rotate, Invert and Break..., I can Snore, Teach, Change Diaper and HalfBake...). Alas, the author doesn't give an intent, which may be the death of it.

       Choreography already has a specific language to describe body movements through space. I am too lazy once again to provide a link. Have a good evening.
entremanure, May 20 2002

       Are you talking about Life Forms, the graphic choreo/dance sequence system or are you talking about dance notation (labanotation)? I posted links for each. Both are graphic as opposed to a text and text markup system. I've seen Life Forms but never knew about labanotation. It looks interesting.
bristolz, May 20 2002

       D'oh! Sorry, I should have seen your links. Its late...Delete my anno if you want to.
entremanure, May 20 2002

       Not to worry. I posted the links after I read your anno.

       Tae Kwin doxp, the latest clueflon-based operating system can manage JCML with enough standing power to wrestle down BLML in background operations.

       One of my classmates in the Artificial Intelligence II class in Edinburgh, 1977, created a language to describe dance moves. Would probably work fine for this. Unfortunately the reference copy of her paper was lost when the AI Dept library in Edinburgh burned down a few years back. A tragic day.

       The JC in JCML should surely stand for Jean-Claude, no? Otherwise known as "The Belgian Notation".
