Lightweight non-interactive sh(1)-like scripting language

execline is a very light non-interactive scripting language, which is similar to /bin/sh. Simple shell scripts can be easily rewritten in the execline language, improving performance and memory usage. execline was designed for use in embedded systems, but works on most Unix flavors.

execline features conditional loops, getopt-style option handling, filename globbing, and more. Meanwhile, its syntax is far more logical and predictable than the shell’s syntax, and has no security issues.
