An interpreted programming language that is delivered in the form of a multi-platform C library, although it is also ships with an standalone interpreter in a shell called "slsh" but that is only provided in source form. Originally developed as the scripting/macro language for the JED text editor and is intended to be similarly embedded into your own C programs but has gained some strong array-based operations since it was originally released. While the structure of the language is somewhat dissimilar to C it has a very similar syntax and supports most C datatypes making interaction between the interpreter and C and/or C++ code a doodle.
