Languages don't tell you anything - tools for using languages do. For any
programming language (except my ToonTalk :-)), I can imagine a tool that
reports misspelled variables. In some languages the reports are only
warnings since the variable might have a binding when the program runs. I
can also imagine tools that when provided with optional type information
report type violations in programs before they are run.

programming tools and it seems to me that this thread has been mixing them
