From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rascal is a domain-specific language for metaprogramming and language oriented programming, such as static code analysis, program transformation, program generation and implementation of domain-specific languages.[1] It is a general meta language in the sense that it does not have a bias for any particular software language. It includes primitives from relational calculus and term rewriting. Its syntax and semantics are based on procedural (imperative) and functional programming.
