(synopsis "Numeric oriented programming language")
(description
"Nickle is a programming language based prototyping environment with
powerful programming and scripting capabilities. Nickle supports a variety of
datatypes, especially arbitrary precision numbers. The programming language
vaguely resembles C. Some things in C which do not translate easily are
different, some design choices have been made differently, and a very few
features are simply missing. Nickle provides the functionality of Unix bc, dc
and expr in a different form. It is also an ideal environment for prototyping
complex algorithms. Nickle's scripting capabilities make it a replacement for
spreadsheets in some applications, and its numeric features complement the
limited numeric functionality of text-oriented languages such as AWK and Perl.")
