Ghostscript is a processor for PostScript and PDF files. It can rasterize these files to a wide variety of printers, devices for screen preview, and image file formats. Since applications tend to prepare pages for printing in a high-level format such as PostScript, most Unix users with low-level bitmap printers, such as inkjets, use GhostScript as part of the printing process. In addition, Ghostscript is capable of converting PostScript files, functionality comparable to Adobe Acrobat Distiller, but on the command line. In addition, Ghostscript is used for file import and viewing by a great many other applications, including xv, ImageMagick, gimp, and xdvi. Several GUI wrappers for viewing PostScript and PDF files exist, including GSview, ghostview, gv, ggv, and kghostview. This is far from a comprehensive list.

ClearLisp is a Common LISP interpreter written in C# with the purpose of scripting in a .NET or Mono environment. The ClearLisp language supports a large subset of CL and has an object model with generic functions, class and instance methods, properties, and import of existing .NET classes. ClearLisp executes LISP scripts in interactive mode or in Web mode (IIS; XSP or Apache with Mono). Sample ClearLisp code is provided in the form of a personal, file-based wiki Web application.
Monster script (or just Monster) is an advanced scripting language made specifically for game development. The language features many new and powerful features, while still aiming first and foremost at increasing productivity and actual usability. The language is especially designed to facilitate game modding and user-generated content and scripts. It is highly object oriented, type safe, bytecode-compiled, and is easily embedded into existing game engines.
Thyrd is an experimental, reflective, visual programming language and environment. In Thyrd, both data and code are stored in cells situated in nested two-dimensional grids. All operations the user can perform to edit the structure are implemented as operators in the Thyrd language, thus a Thyrd program can inspect and modify itself or other programs in the same space. Thyrd belongs to the Forth family of languages. It most resembles Joy in that it uses quotation and combinators to implement iteration and recursion.
X# (pronounced X-sharp) is an XML-oriented programming language designed to quickly create Web applications and services. Everything is represented as an XML tree, and instead of using functions to manipulate information or perform actions, all possible operations are done by adding, removing, or changing nodes from this tree. Since there are no functions to learn and everything is done intuitively, even inexperienced developers can create complex Web applications and services quickly.
