The differences between implementing a language 'from scratch' and the strategy of embedding a little language into an existing language are discussed. The implement-from-scratch strategy uses technology, while an embedding strategy reuses technology. If a programmer chooses to implement the new language from scratch, there is no programming environment. If the new language is embedded, the existing IDE for the language may also work for the little language, but without properly understanding the language in its own right.
