Unicon is an extension of the Icon programming language. This is a combination of two previous efforts of Idol (an OOP extension) and a Posix extension.
A fairly thorough coverage of the language can be found in the online book Programming with Unicon.
Just playing around with the language, the OOP extension is fairly nice. The OO is syntactic sugar using Icon's flexible records (non-sugar version). About the only thing that gave me fits was trying to figure out the seperate file compilation.
