XL ("eXtensible Language") is the first computer programming language designed to support concept programming.[1]

XL features programmer-reconfigurable syntax and semantics. Compiler plug-ins can be used to add new features to the language. A base set of plug-ins implements a relatively standard imperative language. Programmers can write their own plug-ins to implement application-specific notations, such as symbolic differentiation, which can then be used as readily as built-in language features.

Similar works[edit]

There are projects that exploit similar ideas to create code with higher level of abstraction. Among them are:
