Factor dynamic programming language with OpenGL API bindings

Factor is a programming language running on FreeBSD, Linux, Mac OS X and Windows, aimed at expert programmers who wish to quickly develop advanced applications. Its main influences are Joy, Forth, and Lisp. It provides an extensible postfix syntax, polymorphism through predicate-based dynamic dispatch, a variety of data structures, a powerful math library, a C library interface, an HTTP server and Web framework, and bindings to the OpenGL API, and Freetype. The implementation consists of a small runtime written in C, together with an optimizing compiler written in Factor that targets x86, PowerPC, and AMD64.
