[The deva language v1 was a learning experiment for creating an interpreted language from the ground-up, with no prior working knowledge on the subject. It makes about every mistake possible... the author went on to create a second version to apply the lessons from v1. v2 is a workable scripting language, but like all such attempts, a third version would include even more lessons (ad infinitum)]

Original goal:
The 'deva' programming language. A small dynamic, language bearing some similarities to C and Python. Designed for embedding in C++ applications, it is also suitable for simple scripting applications. Written to be as simple as possible.
