Arc

Arc is now released. For those not in the known, Arc is a dialect of Lisp, written by Paul Graham and Robert Morris. In Paul Graham's own word,

"Arc is designed above all for exploratory programming: the kind where you decide what to write by writing it. A good medium for exploratory programming is one that makes programs brief and malleable, so that's what we've aimed for. This is a medium for sketching software." or in short, "it's a quick and dirty language for writing quick and dirty programs."


Taken from tutorial,
