Red 0.4.3

A new programming language strongly inspired by REBOL
Red - This is the Reed's console where you can test some Red code.

Red is a new open-source programming language which takes its inspiration from  REBOL, but with a broader field of usage thanks to its native-code compiler, from system programming to high-level scripting, while providing a modern support for concurrency and multi-core CPU.

The Red language is in its early bootstrapping phase. The Red/System low-level DSL is the first focus. It is a limited C-level language with a REBOL look'n feel, required to build Red's runtime library.

Main features:

  • Functional, imperative and symbolic
  • Prototype-based object support
  • Homoiconic¬†(Red is its own meta-language)
  • Both statically and JIT-compiled to native code
  • Concurrency and parallelism strong support (actors, parallel collections)
  • Low-level system programming abilities through the built-in Red/System DSL
  • High-level scripting and REPL console support
  • Highly embeddable
  • Low memory footprint, garbage collected
  • Low disk footprint (< 1MB)

What's New in This Release:
  • Floating point support - After a long time having only partial floating point support in Red/System, it comes now to Red with a broader support, thanks to the terrific work from Qtxie and Oldes, who managed to push Red further while I was busy moving from Europe to China (though, this might be the topic for another blog entry, as requested by many of you).
  • The new float! datatype implements IEEE-754 64-bit floating point format. It is available with most of the usual math functions support:
  • infix operators: +, -, *, /, **.
  • prefix base functions: add, substract, multiply, divide, power.
