The Programming Language Amber
Amber is an open source scripting language, which is being developed for easy realization of High-Level Programming with Self-Extension. The term "self-extension" means a way to extend languages' syntaxes or semantics using capabilities of themselves, and it includes following techniques:
- Domain Specific Languages (DSLs)
- Extensible Syntax
- Symbolic-Programming and Eval
- Dynamic and Static Reflection
Writing programs with high-level abstraction is very important in terms of productivity, portability and performance. Since the optimal programming language is different according to programming targets in general, capabilities of self-extension are also important. Amber has been designed and developed placing the highest priority to self-extension from the start, so self-extension of Amber is easy and has high-degree of freedom.
Amber can be compiled only in Linux environment now.
