I have been toying around with an emerging language haXe and thought I would share.

haXe is a new open source language with the unique twist of being able to compile to multiple web language targets. Currently it compiles to javascript, actionscript, and neko which is a new vm for server side stuff.

I think haXe is a beautiful language. Its strongly typed but uses type inference. It also has a well rounded object orientation syntax and a unique way of handling for loops. And even though its a curly lang, the syntax is clean and well thought.

Of course its most impressive strength is the build system that allows "executables" to target web languages.

Check it out. I think it could really go somewhere.

Looks cool and easy to use...especially the web-languages thing! What have you done with it so far?
