  Description     : Q equational programming language

Q stands for "equational", so Q, in a nutshell, is a programming
language which lets you "program by equations". You specify a system of
equations which the interpreter uses as "rewrite rules" to reduce
expressions to "normal form".

The Q language supports a rich variety of built-in types, like
arbitrary precision integers, floating point numbers (double precision
64 bit), truth values, strings, lists and files. It also provides
primitives for exception handling and multithreaded execution. Q also
allows you to interface to "external" modules written in the C
programming language, which provides a means to access functions in C
libraries and employ C's higher processing speed for time-critical
tasks. Conversely, Q scripts can also be executed from C, which allows
Q to be used as an embedded language or term rewriting engine in C/C++
