Pliant    up
  Description: Pliant's special feature is its dynamic compiler. Small programs can be immediately started like in an interpreter, large programs can be precompiled to reduce the time until the program is ready to run. Pliant is an open language, i.e. you can extend the parser and compiler (of course in Pliant).
