This programming language may be used to instruct a computer to perform a task.
|Execution method:||Compiled (bytecode)|
|Parameter passing methods:||By value|
If you know Unicon, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in Unicon.
Unicon is a unification of several extended dialects of the Icon language, featuring Icon plus classes, POSIX system facilities, GDBM and ODBC-based (SQL) database access, packages, 3D graphics and more, all provided at a very high semantic level.
In addition to Icon, Unicon draws from:
- IDOL an object-oriented Icon preprocessor
- MTIcon a multi-threading Icon. (Most recently, in version 12, improved multi-threading capabilities were added.)
While Unicon is mostly a super-set of Icon there are some differences and incompatibilities.
