Euphoria is a powerful yet simple programming language, developed by Robert Craig at Rapid Deployment Software in 1993. It is very easy to use, and it has good support, which makes it an excellent language for novice programmers. Euphoria is an interpreted language, just like AWK or QBasic. Although Euphoria does not claim to be object-oriented, some disagree by stating that its scope rules and flexible data structures allow you to simulate any method of programming, including object-oriented. "Euphoria is a small, fast, cheap programming language and a true gift to young programmers.", states Paul Smith in a August 1997 article in the Monitor.
Euphoria has been used in a variety of commercial programs, it has been used for the development of a number of commercial computer games, and has been the inspiration behind The Euphoria Pixel Bot Project.
The Hello world! program was written with the help of the Hello, World Page!.
