    I searched the Web and these forums but was unable to find the answer.

    What more common programming laguage does AFL (AmiBroker Formula Language) derive from? Or what what language does it derive from?

    Say, Java has syntax very similar to C++. Most of C# is derived from Java with a little C++ put back in.

    S (programming laguage in statistical package R) is derived from APL.

    Things don't hang in vacuum.

  2. It's similar to C

    But (and by the words of the developer Tomasz Janeczko):

    here is some more info
  3. AFL has syntax similar to C language and JScript. On top of that it adds native array operations.
  4. "This covers any imaginable application and any imaginable need you may have."

    I think this is true with AFL.
