Odin is a systems programming language designed with the goal of replacing C. The language aims to provide similar performance and efficiency as C but in a safer, more expressive, and less error-prone environment. Odin offers a type system with support for generics and meta-programming facilities that enable high-level abstractions without sacrificing low-level control. It was developed by Graham Pentheny, originally based on Zig before diverging into its own syntax and semantics.
