Your Help Needed
If you know Raven, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in Raven.

Raven is an eclectic language with features derived from Python, Forth, and Perl. It was developed independently by Sean Pringle. Raven is available from aerosuidae.net under the GNU General Public License. It is currently only available for the Linux platform.


Its described feature set includes:

From Python[edit]

  • Whitespace indentation to define code blocks.
  • Some common function names.

From Forth[edit]

  • Postfix Notation and the Data Stack.
  • Dictionary of short atomic functions.

From Perl[edit]

Other design goals[edit]

  • Use clear and concise syntax.
  • Be fast to write and fast to run.
  • Use closures as a simple object model.
  • Have minimal restrictions on variable and function names.
  • Rely on best practices guidelines rather than imposing rules for everything.
  • Interface to MySQL and SQLite.
  • Support multithreading.
