Nickle is a language with powerful programming and scripting capabilities.
Nickle supports a variety of datatypes, especially arbitrary precision
integers, rationals, and imprecise reals.  The input language vaguely
resembles C.  Some things in C which do not translate easily are different,
some design choices have been made differently, and a very few features are
simply missing.
