Now new version is being developed in 'next' directory. It will replace current C++ implementation.
Dachs is a general-purpose programming language designed to be enjoyable, statically-typed and dog-friendly. Dachs is intended to be used for efficient applications and tools development, not for system programming.
- Light to write (inspired by Ruby)
- Strongly and statically typed
- Native code efficiency
- Familiar with functional features
# If 'var' is specified, the argument is copied and passed by value # then mutable. Otherwise, the argument is passed by reference then # immutable. Variable definition has the same rule as this. # Type of arguments and returned value are deduced automatically. # If you want to specify the type of argument, you can use ':'. # e.g. # func step_to(var first : float, last : float, block) : () func step_to(var first, last, block) for first <= last block(first) first += 1 end end # UFCS is implemented. # '1.step_to n' is equivalent to 'step_to(1, n)' # Dachs has a block inspired from Ruby. # do-end block is passed to the last argument of callee as lambda object. # Here, 'block' variable is captured into do-end block. func fizzbuzz(n, block) 1.step_to n do |i| case when i % 15 == 0 block("fizzbuzz") when i % 3 == 0 block("fizz") when i % 5 == 0 block("buzz") else block(i) end end end func main fizzbuzz 100 do |i| println(i) end end # Array and tuple are available as container. # (dictionary will come.)
