* http://github.com/mirah/mirah/issues

== DESCRIPTION:

Mirah is a customizable programming language featuring static types,
local type inference and a heavily Ruby-inspired syntax. Mirah
currently includes a typer/compiler backend for the JVM which can
output either JVM bytecode or Java source files.

== FEATURES:

* Ruby-like syntax
* Compiles to .class or .java
* Fast as Java
* No runtime library

== SYNOPSIS:

mirah <script.mirah>
mirah -e "inline script"
mirahc <script.mirah>
mirahc -e "inline script" # produces DashE.class
mirahc --java <script.mirah>
mirahc --java -e "inline script" # produces DashE.java

== REQUIREMENTS:

* JRuby 1.6.0 or higher.
* BiteScript 0.0.8 or higher

== INSTALL:
