Your Help Needed
If you know Unicon, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in Unicon.
Unicon is a virtual machine. Other virtual machines.

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.

Icon itself is an evolution of the line of languages COMIT, SNOBOL, SNOBOL4, and SL5.
