Lua is a great programming language that prides itself on ANSI C portability, small size, simplicity, and ease of embedding. Due to these goals, the official Lua distribution cannot provide features common to popular stand-alone scripting languages. The goal of the LuaCheia project is to make a full-featured language based on Lua that makes it more usable as a stand-alone language.
U++ is a C++ cross-platform rapid application development suite focused on programmers' productivity without sacrificing runtime performance. Based on strictly deterministic design, it provides a viable alternative to garbage-collected platforms, even for business logic oriented problems.
