NGL (programming language)
|This article does not cite any sources. (December 2009) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)|
NGL was the result of research performed during 2001-2004 by Ernst Herrera Legorreta looking for ways to apply function-level programming languages to bioinformatics, large scale multidimensional data warehouses and data mining algorithms. Initially, the J language was used, but soon it was decided to create a new language atop it, one that would support a different notation style, plus pattern matching and related syntax. NGL compiles to J, but an NGL-to-J function is also available at run-time, to provide dynamic behavior.
NGL incorporates the FL language's user-defined datatype features that were not implemented in J.
