The V Programming Language
Why we should include this into the repository, i.e. what does it do that the alternatives do not?
Comparison of V and Other Languages - https://vlang.io/compare
I created V because none of the existing languages had all of the following features:
Fast compilation D, Go, Delphi
Simplicity & maintainability Go
Great performance on par with C and
zero cost C interop C, C++, D, Delphi, Rust
Safety (immutability, no null, option types, free from data races) Rust
Easy concurrency Go
Easy cross compilation Go
Compile time code generation D
Small compiler with zero dependencies -
No global state -
Hot code reloading -
