Sather is an object-oriented language designed to be simple, efficient, safe, flexible and
non-proprietary. 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. ---
Sather normally compiles to native code, but can make java byte-code.
