Nim programming language

Nim formerly known as “Nimrod” is a statically typed, imperative programming language that tries to give the programmer ultimate power without compromises on runtime efficiency. This means it focuses on compile-time mechanisms in all their various forms.

Beneath a nice infix/indentation based syntax with a powerful AST based, hygienic macro system lies a semantic model that supports a soft realtime GC on thread local heaps. Asynchronous message passing is used between threads, so no “stop the world” mechanism is necessary. An unsafe shared memory heap is also provided for the increased efficiency that results from that model.
