CLU is a programming language created at the Computer Science Department at MIT. It was one of the first object-oriented languages, designed to support data abstraction as its primary principle. The language features clusters (abstract types with explicitly specified operations) and iterators (operations that traverse elements in a collection), along with exception handling mechanism and coroutine constructs for concurrent programming. Its syntax has influenced later languages like C++ and Java.
