Objeck is an object-oriented programming language with functional features. Objeck emphasizes, expression, simplicity, portability, and scalability. The programming environment consists of a compiler, virtual machine, and command line debugger with IDE plugins.

class Hello {
  function : Main(args : String[]) ~ Nil {
    "Hello World"  PrintLine();
    "Καλημέρα κόσμε"  PrintLine();
    "こんにちは 世界"  PrintLine();

See more on Rosetta Code and checkout the following programming tasks.

Building on Windows

  • Unzip the OpenSSL Windows libraries in objeck-lang/core/lib/openssl/win/x64
  • Using Visual Studio 2022 or later open objeck-lang/core/release/objeck.sln
  • Ensure the core build completes successfully (in Release mode)
  • To build everything, open a Visual Studio x64 command prompt and go to objeck-lang/core/release directory and run deploy_amd64.cmd
  • Build output with binaries and documentation will be located in objeck-lang/core/release/deploy64
