Pike Programming Language

A C-like language with all the OO trimmings, garbage collection, strong data types, and excellent string processing makes a powerful tool for Web programming.

In a nutshell, Pike is a language that is highly optimized for string and text processing (like Perl), portable (like Java but more flexible), suitable for functional programming and Lambda calculus (like Haskell), appropriate for concurrent applications, multi-purpose and flexible (like Python), but with strict type checking and casting (like Ada).
