Sather is an object-oriented programming language designed for researchers in computer science. It was developed from Eiffel and C++ at the University of California, Berkeley in the mid-1990s. The language uses multiple dispatch with explicit types and classes to simplify code development by improving method selection and providing automated memory management via garbage collection. Sather has a simple syntax, which can express complex algorithms succinctly. Although not widely used outside academic circles, its concepts have influenced advancements in programming languages such as Java and Python.
