It has a C-style syntax, is dynamically typed, and is designed to be easily embedded within and extended by a larger host application. It is written in (and is designed to be used from) the D programming language. It can also be used as a standalone language. Some external libraries are currently under development, including bindings to SDL, OpenGL, and libpcre.
