|Description||MillScript is a programming language for the batch creation of websites.
MillScript is a Java based implementation of the Spice language(see <a
href="http://www.openspice.org/">The Open Spice Group</a>), with some
additional custom features.
In terms of intellectual inheritance, MillScript is a simplified variant of
Spice - an experimental programming language developed at HP Labs, Bristol.
Spice, in turn, is a direct ancester of Lisp. However, the designers of
Spice were especially concerned with the needs of "occasional" or
"cross-over" programmers; people who needed to program as a part, possibly a
very minor part, of their job. This makes Spice a language of special
relevance to our business.
This document summarises the language in terms that will be useful to people
language specification by any stretch of the imagination! It skips lightly
over the stuff that is likely to be familiar and dwells on the more unusual
features, such as multiple-valued expressions. It may well be worth
following this document up by reading through the tutorial.|
