Frink is a programming language and calculating tool. It helps with unit conversions, physical calculations, and can do arbitrary-precision math computations. It was created by Alan Eliasen in 1996 as an educational tool for physics students but grew to be useful for scientists, engineers, and enthusiasts who need accurate modeling of physical systems. The syntax for Frink is more human-readable than traditional programming languages, letting users create scripts that read like scientific equations or diagrams.
