Description Rajesh Krishnan 2010-04-02 01:17:18 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: A new statically typed, imperative programming language, 
that supports procedural, object oriented, functional 
and generic programming styles while remaining simple 
and efficient.

Additional Notes:
  Tested this on Fedora 12 (x86_64).  Let me know if I need to test it on F13 as well.
  Also ran 'rpmlint' and did not find any major flaws with both the srpm and spec.
