Lush is an object-oriented programming language designed for
researchers, experimenters, and engineers interested in large-scale
numerical and graphic applications.
If you do research and development in signal processing, image
processing, machine learning, computer vision, bio-informatics, data
mining, statistics, simulation, optimization, or artificial
intelligence, and feel limited by Matlab and other existing tools,
Lush is for you. If you want a simple environment to experiment with
graphics, video, and sounds, Lush is for you.
