There’s a new version of Charm, Ee i ee I/O

Peter Nowosad of Qubit Consultancy Ltd has announced the availability of version 2.5.6 of Charm, his high level programming language for RISC OS computers.

Released under the terms of the GNU GPLv3 licence, Charm comes with a compiler that generates efficient code with a small memory footprint, and a desktop shell that supports easy editing, compiling, assembling or linking of multiple files. Charm is described as “a simple to learn yet powerful object oriented high level language.”

The latest update introduces new dynamic I/O libraries, and the language gains both static and dynamic constructors and destructors, which can be used to create and remove objects respectively, setting things up and cleaning things up as appropriate.
