RE:Where is Pike?

Yes, cool that another one is using this language as well ;)

I really like programming in C, but some months ago I was searching for a scripting language, which would not have to be compiled for some quick'n dirty scripts.

I looked at perl, python and ruby, but none of them kept my beloved C/Java syntax.

But finally I found pike, and it is really C for scripting with some cool features (like switch() on strings, or advanced array handling).
