     systems, reports problems, and fixes those problems automatically

     An embedded scripting language.  Sporting an especially clean syntax,
       the PIKT scripting language shares

       language breaks new ground,
       introducing unique features to make your programming easier.

     Freeware, distributed under the GNU copyleft. 
     Available now for Solaris, SunOS, and Linux.  (Other ports are
