Orwell is a strict superset of the C programming language, the Object-oriented Real-time Well-organized Language. It extends ANSI C with inheritance, encapsulation, and polymorphism, making it an object-oriented language while maintaining compatibility with existing software written in C. The Orwell compiler pre-processes code before converting it into standard C code to be compiled further using a regular compiler. This approach allows developers to write object-oriented code without sacrificing performance or re-implementing everything from scratch in a different language likely to introduce bugs or inefficiencies.
