ferite is a lighweight, portable, threadsafe scripting engine with a language that is very easy to pick up and use.
ferite is a scripting engine and language written in c for complete portability.
ferite is a clean language with influences from various places: objects from Java/C++, functions from C/php, closures from scheme, block calling from ruby, namespaces from C++, as well as its own a sane loose typing mechanism, variant type and set of nice APIs.
Its origins are from one of those "it seems like a good idea", the good idea was provoked by finding perl a real pain in the arse to embed (from what I gather it's easier nowadays). It started in the summer of 2000 (with various tries and fails within the pre-ceding two years). It reached version 1.0 in the second quarter of 2005.

What's New in This Release:
· Fix for a threading issue that caused the engine to crash with a memory issue.
· Fix for rmi and a lack of parsing of arguments within function calls.
· Fix for rmi that caused the starvation of network sockets within the server environment. The new fix forces the GC to be run when in blocking listen mode and also forces the shutdown of network sockets.
· Fix for array code that would cause objects to have an inflated refcount and cause scripts to not deleted objects within the GC
· Fix for refcounting issues within the assignment of objects
· Fix for building on CYGWIN: required -no-undefined on the libraries and a missing header in aphex_thread.c
· Fix for class/namespace modifies on a class/namesapce that already exists
