SockZ is a small programming language for RiscOS computers,
using a stack (smells like Forth, huh? ;) and able to work with
big relative integers. It features only a minimalist set of
instructions but allows easy definition of functions (eg to
handle fractions or polynomials). Enough babble, here is an example program:
;Comments start with a semicolon (as in assembly)
INPUT ;ask for a number n
COPY PRINT "!=" ;print it followed by "!="
! PRINT ;compute n! then print it
;Recursive factorial function, input=... n, output=... n!
#! ;Functions start with a sharp and return with END
COPY ;... n n
SKIP>0 !end ;go to !end if n<=0
COPY ;... n n
1 ;... n n 1
- ;... n n-1
! ;... n (n-1)!
* ;... n!=n*(n-1)!
END ;quit function
.!end ;Labels start with a dot
DROP 1 END ;return 1 when n<=0

If you want to know more about SockZ download the whole archive, it contains
some example programs, benchmarks, sourcecode & more documentation. For
the time being here is a small list of features:
+ Faster than GNU bc 1.02, Derive v2.03, Maple V2 (DOS) & Numbers
+ Allows easy definition of functions.
+ Has small memory needs and the interpreter is only 8Kb.
+ Can handle integers in the range [-22^34+1;22^34-1].
+ Stack can contain up to 231-1 objects.
+ Written in pure ARM assembly language!
+ Freeware and provided with sources.
+ Has a funny name and doesn't stink as much as real sockz. ;)
= Currently interpreted, a compiler/tokeniser might come later on.
- Very lousy development environment.
- No byte arrays/string handling facilities.
- No load/save facility.
