Pixilang – A Pixel-Oriented Programming Language

Pixilang - pixel oriented programming languagePixilang is a programming language for small graphics & sound applications, created by Alex Zolotov (NightRadio) and Mik Razuvaev (Goglus) for non-programmers, demosceners and designers.

Pixilang programs are stored in TXT-files, so you can edit in any text-editor. The Pixilang interpreter works on different operation systems (Windows, Linux, PalmOS) and is distributed under GNU GPL license.

Main features:

  • easy syntax and small amount of commands;
  • universal containers (pixi) using for text/gfx storage;
  • pixel graphics describing in a source TXT-files directly (using ASCII symbols);
  • transparency (simple and with alpha-channel);
  • simple commands for rotation and resize;
  • no floating point math operations – only 32bit integers are using;
  • playing music in MOD and XM formats (using PsyTexx engine);
  • functions for sound synthesis;
  • loading GIF (animated) and JPG file formats;
  • realtime export to GIF

If you’re using Pixilang for musical applications, I’d be interested in hearing what you’re doing in the comments.
