Ferite is designed to be added into other applications. With a constant API your application will be able to stay binary compatible with the latest ferite engine. This is very good because it allows you, the application programmer, to add powerful scripting to your application without having to worry about the actual internals. Ferite provides type checking, and does a lot of work for the programmer to keeps things as simple as possible.
Ferite provides a language very similar to that of C and Java with additional features from other languages (e.g. Regular expressions in the style of Perl). This means that the skill set acquired through learning these main stream languages can be instantly applied to the ferite scripts. Ferite is by no means a heavy language, it has kept the small language size of C which allows it to remain fast and lightweight. There is also the ability to push the language further with native classes, objects, namespaces, variables and methods.
Ferite also has a very small system memory and disk foot print making it ideal for it's use.
If you are looking for a scripting engine that is threadsafe, and also allows for multi-threading within an application - ferite is the way to go. It relies on operating system threads which allows ferite to scale to multi-processor systems very easily.
