  Glish 
 
  Glish  is  an  interpretive  language  for  building  loosely-coupled 
  distributed  systems  from  modular,  event-oriented  programs. 
  Written  by  Vern  Paxson  .  These  programs  are 
  written  in  conventional  languages  such  as  C,  C++,  or  Fortran. 
 
  Glish  scripts  can  create  local  and  remote  processes  and 
  control  their  communication.  Glish  also  provides  a  full, 
  array-oriented  programming  language  (similar  to  {S})  for 
  manipulating  binary  data  sent  between  the  processes.  In 
  general  Glish  uses  a  centralised  communication  model  where 
  interprocess  communication  passes  through  the  Glish 
  {interpreter},  allowing  dynamic  modification  and  rerouting  of 
  data  values,  but  Glish  also  supports  point-to-point  links 
  between  processes  when  necessary  for  high  performance. 
 
  Version  2.4.1  includes  an  {interpreter},  {C++}  {class}  library 
  and  user  manual.  It  requires  C++  and  there  are  ports  to 
  {SunOS},  {Ultrix},  an  {HP/UX}  (rusty).
