The AngelCode Scripting Library, or AngelScript as it is also known, is a cross-platform scripting library designed to allow applications to extend their functionality through external scripts.

The AngelCode Scripting Library, or AngelScript as it is also known, is a cross-platform scripting library designed to allow applications to extend their functionality through external scripts.

The same functions used by the application internally can also be used by the scripting engine, which eliminates the need to duplicate functionality.

For the script writer the scripting language follows the widely known syntax of C/C++, but without the need to worry about pointers and memory leaks. Contrary to most scripting languages, AngelScript uses the common C/C++ datatypes for more efficient communication with the host application.

AngelScript is completely free, released under the zlib license.
