Atoll is a programming language and development environment for numerical and scientific computing. It was developed to improve productivity by providing programming constructs adapted to the tasks encountered in scientific applications. The language's syntax is similar to Fortran, and it supports array-based computing with automatic memory management, vectorization, and parallel processing techniques. Atoll encourages clarity in code writing through strong typing and expressive semantics aimed at reducing the gap between mathematical algorithms described on paper and their implementation in code.
