Yorick is an interpreted programming language for:
* scientific simulations or calculations
* postprocessing or steering large simulation codes
* interactive scientific graphics
* reading, writing, and translating large files of numbers
The language features a compact syntax for many common array
operations, so it processes large arrays of numbers very quickly and
efficiently.  Superficially, yorick code resembles C code, but yorick
variables are never explicitly declared and have a dynamic scoping
similar to many Lisp dialects.  The yorick language is designed to be
typed interactively at a keyboard, as well as stored in files for
later use.
This package includes an emacs-based development environment, which
you can launch by typing M-x yorick in emacs.
Many add-on packages and plug-ins are available for Yorick (the
package names begin with "yorick-"). You may want to install the
yorick-full metapackage which depends on the vast majority of them.
