Type inferencing systems are statically typed, but declaring the > types is optional; eg, Haskell and ML. Or PL/I that Sean mentioned. I seem to remember a variable was assumed to be a double if its name started with 'n' and other types for other initials. So when you made a typo, nubmer_of_things was was not reported as an error but rather contained garbage, and possibly of a different type than what you expected. But of course it all worked through autoconversions, until you suddenly got an underflow on what you thought was an integer. Ari.
