Tokay lang

In comparison to a general purpose programming languages, there’s no explicit branching, substring extraction or reading from input required, as this is directly built into the language and its entire structuring.

If you’re familiar with awk, you might find a similarity in above example to awk’s PATTERN { action } syntax. This approach is recursive in Tokay, so that the action-part again is a further pattern area, or just action code. This is exactly where the intention behind Tokay starts, but not by thinking of a line-based execution working on fields, but a token-based approach working on anything matched from the input, including recursive structures that can be expressed by a grammar.
