I just renamed the language I was formerly calling ‘chimp’ to ‘nim’ (as in Nim Chimpsky, who in turn was named after Noam Chomsky — and yes, this does makes my geeky bits all kinds of tingly).

This was done largely to prevent any confusion with the CHIMP meta-programming tool concocted by John L. Kenyon for his Master’s thesis at the University of Nevada. Maybe a little premature, but I’ve been planning to do this for a while and there’s been a bit of a lull in activity in recent weeks. I figure now was as good a time as any.

So if you were previously tracking chimp, you might want to turn your attention to nim. All new development will be happening there.

You can get the source code for nim from GitHub.
