Language for server-side Web applications

BRL is a language designed for server-side WWW-based applications, particularly database applications as it is particularly good at constructing output that is a mix of static and dynamic content. It is based on Scheme, which makes the syntax extremely simple yet powerful. This implementation is a Java Servlet using the Kawa Scheme compiler.
