The Neat Language

Neat is a C-like statically-typed native compiled language with automated reference counting, OOP and macros. Its syntax is heavily “inspired by” D.

Have some example code! Here’s a program that prints the longest line in a file:

module longestline;

macro import std.macro.listcomprehension;

import std.file;
import std.stdio;
import std.string;

void main(string[] args) {
    auto text = readText(args[1]);
    string longestLine = [
        argmax(line.strip.length) line
        for line in text.split("\n")];
$ neat longestline.nt
$ ./longestline longestline.nt
macro import std.macro.listcomprehension;
