Sleep is an embeddable scripting solution for Java applications. Sleep is heavily inspired by Perl with bits of Objective-C thrown in. The Sleep Java API allows the language to be extended with new constructs, operators, functions, and variable containers. Version 2 just got released.

Sounds like a real snoozer!
“But boss, I don’t see why you should be coming down on me. I was working. Sleep is the new programming language I’m learning. I was coding some new classes for our customer. Honest.”
Yeah you could replace the “who’s on first” joke with some of these new programming language names: sleep, groovy, nice, boo
interesting..not one comment yet that isnt just a pun… lots of deep thinking….
The clean syntax of perl with the low overhead of java.
Its got to be a winner!
