The Cat programming language now has a type checker and type inference engine. Cat also now has its own domain 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.
