Nickle

Nickle is an interpreted programming language for numerical computations. It provides functionality similar to C, like loops, conditionals, and function definition but emphasizes numeric computation. The language has built-in support for arrays and matrices as fundamental data types. It also offers math functions and linear algebra operations. Nickle's syntax is influenced by AWK, C++, Perl, Python, and other mathematical programming languages. Although it's not widely used in industry settings, Nickle can serve educational purposes or environments where rapid numerical computing prototypes are needed without the overhead of lower-level languages or the complexity of higher-level scientific computing platforms such as MATLAB or R.
