Package txscript implements the bitcoin transaction script language. There is a comprehensive test suite.
This package has intentionally been designed so it can be used as a standalone package for any projects needing to use or validate bitcoin transaction scripts.
Bitcoin provides a stack-based, FORTH-like language for the scripts in the bitcoin transactions. This language is not turing complete although it is still fairly powerful. A description of the language can be found at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Script
