Not Exactly C

Not eXactly C (NXC) is an open-source high-level programming language for the Lego Mindstorms NXT robotics kit. It was created to provide a more comprehensive set of programming constructs for NXT-G, the graphical programming environment that comes with the kit. NXC is based on the C language and can be written using the BricxCC IDE or other compatible editors. The language offers support for multitasking through threads, time-based behavior control, and advanced sensor input processing. NXC code compiles to byte code that executes on an on-brick virtual machine which makes it a good choice for educators looking to teach basic software engineering concepts in a tangible way or hobbyists who want to extend their robot's capabilities beyond what is possible with standard Mindstorms software.
