Lush

The Lisp Universal SHell

Lush is an object oriented scripting language aimed at numeric and graphic applications. It is a dialect of Lisp which is simpler than Common Lisp without particularly resembling Scheme. Lush promises high performance via tight C integration with bindings to many C libraries. You can begin development in a fast, dynamic interpreter written in C. Once your application has stabilized, you can add declarations and compile it to C and then to native code. You can even mix Lush and C code in the same function, if need be. It looks promising for rapid development of computationally intensive applications like machine learning and simulation.

With thousands of functions available, extremely simple syntax, and a slick on-line help system, beginners should quickly become productive. Experienced Lispers have the full power of Lisp at their disposal.
