The power of procedural programming right here, right now for your Linux distribution

editor's review




Agena is an open source, free, multi-platform and easy-to-learn procedural programming language designed for everyday usage. It can be used in graphical, scientific, linguistic and educational environments, as well as on scripting applications, supporting all mainstream operating systems.

Offers numerous flow control facilities

The application offers numerous flow control facilities, such as if, then. elif, else conditions, case of and else conditions, is operator, numerical for, from, to, and by loops, combined numerical for and while loops, for and in loops, while and do/as loops, a skip statement, a break statement, as well as data type validation.

Provides enumeration assignments

Among other features, we can mention an arbitrary precision mathematical library, easy configuration of your personal environment, an easy-to-use package system, enumeration assignments, scope control via the epocs/scope keywords, and many other attractive features.

Under the hood and availability

A quick look under the hood will show us that the project is written in the C, BASIC, Lua and ALGOL 68 programming languages, which means that its syntax resembles the syntax of these projects. It runs entirely in a console/terminal environment, which means that it features no graphical user interface (GUI).

Ships with a simple editor

Despite the fact that the Agena software is a command-line application, it ships with a simple editor graphical software, called AgenaEdit, which feature an integrated Agena environment and syntax highlighting capabilities. It is heavily inspired by a similar editor developed by Bill Spitzak for the FLTK cross-platform C++ GUI toolkit.

Works on Raspberry Pi

Agena's graphical capabilities are supported on the GNU/Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, eComStation - OS/2 and DOS operating systems. It can be easily deployed on both 64-bit and 32-bit hardware platforms, and has been successfully tested on the ARM-based Raspberry Pi computer board.
