Sather is an object oriented language designed to be simple,
efficient, safe, flexible and non-proprietary. One way of placing it
in the "space of languages" is to say that it aims to be as efficient
as C, C++, or Fortran, as elegant as and safer than Eiffel, and
support higher-order functions and iteration abstraction as well as
Common Lisp, CLU or Scheme.
Note: Sather has now been converted to the GPL/LGPL licence.
This last release from ICSI is available
It is essentially a re-release of 1.2 beta, for the
purpose of changing the licence.
Continuing development of Sather may be found at the
GNU site. Thanks
to Norbert Nemec for making this happen!
