Gorby is a small stack based scripting language written by Geoffrey Hamilton. It's history is essentially Forth in that it stores variables on a stack, but beyond that there is very little similarity.
Gorby is infinitly extensible, meaning you can add on to the syntax forever. The basic unit of the language is the word, and words can be mixed together to form other words. A word can be a number, string, primitive word or a defined word.
In summary, Gorby is a powerful scripting langauge. It's low-level features allow the implementation of any Linux feature.
