ICSI maintains a stable public class library and a growing body of contributed code including classes for mathematics, data structures, GUI interfaces and compiling; the Sather compiler, written entirely in Sather, is one such contribution. Sather has a very unrestrictive license which allows its use in proprietary projects but encourages contribution to the public library. A language-aware browser allows new users to explore the library with integrated documentation.
There is a separate page for pSather, an extension to Sather for high-performance parallel distributed computation.
Sather programs can be compiled into code that is comparable in speed to (and may even be faster than) equivalent C++ code. Some benchmarks of Sather programs.
