Hollywood is a multimedia-oriented programming language specialized in creating applications, tools, and games with rich graphical user interfaces. The syntax of this language resembles a combination of JavaScript and BASIC dialects. Hollywood’s animations, 2D vector graphics, text effects and audio processing are hardware-accelerated whenever possible. To use native operating system features or to create platform-independent software, developers can compile Hollywood scripts into stand-alone executables for various platforms without making changes to their codebase. Hollywood's flexibility is enhanced by its support for plugins in C++, extending the capabilities of this programming language for custom tailored solutions.
