Red 0.3.3

A new programming language strongly inspired by REBOL
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)
