scala upgraded to info-channel, moved there programming problems to pc marked,
and created there own kernel to host it, lol :)
a500 did it out of the box
I think you're thinking of some other animal <grin>..
The SCALA language was developed by Professor Martin Bodersky at EPFL, a university I think in Switzerland, but it wasn't until 2008 that it became really usable.
Here's a description of sorts:
"The name Scala stands for "scalable language." The language is so named because it was designed to grow with the demands of its users. You can apply Scala to a wide range of programming tasks, from writing small scripts to building large systems. "
