Majic is an Erc interprter and compiler.
Version: 0.01pre2Majic is the interpreter for a language called Erc. It is written in Java and follows the documented standard for the Erc language. First, a word about Erc: Erc is a link-oriented language. In fact, it is the first link-oriented language. It uses a novel syntax with roots in TCL, Scheme, Bash, and natural languages, among others.
Operating System: Linux
Link orientation is a programming paradigm similar to a cross between link-orientation and object-orientation, with a little hypertext markup thrown in for good measure. In it, although it contains list-like structures which behave like objects, the focus is in fact the links between concepts (structures and elements), as opposed to list organization/processing or object creation.
This makes link-oriented languages such as Erc good for AI or other applications which require keeping track of links between concepts, such as expert systems, semantic searching, and neural nets.
Erc is pronounced URk, with a short U. Majic is pronounced MAH-jik. Both names are derived from the book Web of Angels by John M Ford, in which the Erc was the ethreal currency used in the book universe, and Majic was slang for multiple Erc.
Majic stands for Majic Ate Java Inline Classes, or My Awesome Java Interpreter Code. Erc stands for Enumerate Relative Constants, or Erc's Really Cool. Choose an interpretation, either I sound overconfident (read: like an arrogant jerk), obtrusely technical, or like a hacker with a bad sense of humor. All of that is true, just to clear stuff up.
