Arc is a dialect of the Lisp programming language created by Paul Graham. It was designed for building web applications and creating domain-specific languages. Arc's syntax is minimalistic and influenced by Python, combining macros with traditional functions to facilitate concise code. Despite generating interest when first announced in 2001, it never gained widespread adoption compared to other Lisp variations like Clojure or Racket.
