The Cat programming language now has a type checker and type inference engine. Cat also now has its own domain http://www.cat-language.com where I've posted an introductory manual, and a preview of the interpreter. Be aware though, the download is extremely unstable. It is more a proof of concept than anything else at this point, but if you are interested in hacking it the source code is public domain.

I looked at it and the source. I thought for an entire day what I could say about it, if anything. I couldn't find anything for linking to external API's, so it has limited use for me. I thought the implementation details were far more interesting than the language itself. It reminded me a lot of why I like assembler. The stack aspect of the language is like the hardware (in assembly) that you have to figure out how to use. But beyond that, I have no opinion either way.
