Fawlty Language iconFawlty Language 0.79a

Fawlty Language is an array-oriented interactive programming language for scientific data processing and visualization.
. Its syntax is almost identical to that of the Interactive Data Language (IDL).


- create a directory (INSTDIR), where you want to install FL
- unpack the archive into this directory
- create an FL_DIR environment variable, which points to INSTDIR/fl/fl_0.61
- run FL_DIR/bin/fl

Main features:

  • all language elements are supported
  • multithreaded operators
  • array operations use MMX/SSE/SSE2, if available
  • module profiling
  • line profiling
  • about 300 library functions (more or less usable)
  • true-color (24 bit) direct graphics devices: X, WIN, PS, PDF, Z
  • run-time performance: for many programs, FL is faster than IDL (eg. the empty loop is three times faster in FL :-)
