Agena is an easy-to-learn procedural programming language suited for everyday usage. It has been implemented as an interpreter and can be used in scientific, educational, linguistic, and many other applications. Its syntax looks like very simplified Algol 68 with elements taken from Lua and SQL.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Available both as 7 ZIP and WarpIN package:

  • download the 7 ZIP package to temporary directory and unpack it to destination folder;
  • the WarpIN package is self-installing.

See below for download link(s).

You can install the prerequisites with rpm running the following string in a command line:

yum install libc libcx libgcc1 libssp libstdc++6 libstdc++ libsupc++6 libsupc++ libgcc-fwd readline ncurses

Following ones are the download links for manual installation:

Agena v. 2.13.0 (11/9/2018, Alexander Walz) Readme/What's new
2.13.0, September 11, 2018 - The new function `math.stirnum` computes the Stirling number of the first or the second kind. - The new function `math.pochhammer` computes the Pochhammer function (rising factorial). - The new operator `cube` raises a number or complex number to the power of 3. - The new binary operator `roll` rotates a two-dimensional vector, represented by a complex number, through a given angle. The corresponding function `rot` with the same functionality has been deprecated. A macro has been provided to ensure backward compatibility. The operator is around ten percent faster than `rot` on Windows, and 27 percent on Solaris. - `math.clip`, `math.clamp` and `math.symtrunc` are almost equal in functionality, so all the different flavours have been combined into an extended version of `math.clip` which now also allows to user-define the return value if its argument is not in the given range. Thus, `math.clamp` and `math.symtrunc` have been deprecated. Macros, however, provide backward compatibility. - `math.fdima` has been integrated into `math.fdim`. A macro has been provided to ensure backward compatibility. - The new `bytes` package provides the userdata data structure 'double' storing an Agena number as both a C double (i.e. Agena number) and its two higher and lower 32-bit unsigned integer representations, along with functions to query and assign its individual components. - The following related `math` functions have been moved to the `bytes` package which can be activated through the `import` statement: `fpbtoint`, `gethigh`, `gethighlow`, `getlow`, `inttofpb`, `leadzeros`, `leastsigbit`, `mostsigbit`, `reverse`, `onebits`, `sethigh`, `setlow`, `tobinary`, `tobytes`, `tonumber`. - `math.sethighlowuint64` and `math.gethighlowuint64` have been removed since they could not always process each unsigned 64-bit integer correctly with Agena's doubles-based numeric system. - The following related `math` functions have been moved to the new `fastmath` package which can be activated through the `import` statement: `invroot`, `lbfast`, `reciprocal`, `sincosfast`, `sqroot`, `sqrtfast`. - In OS/2 and DOS, the `gamma` function now also processes complex numbers. - `integral` and `float` have become five percent faster. - `calc.weier`, `calc.polyfit` and `calc.polygen` have become more precise by internally using Kahan-Ozawa summation. - `math.fibinv` has not been correctly registered. This has been fixed. - The following functions deprecated one or more years ago have been finally removed: Removed function Substitute ---------------- ---------- debug.system environ.system dimension tables.dimension irem << x, y -> x symmod y >> os.curdir os.chdir() rect math.rectangular resetd stack.resetd roundf round shift << x, y -> if y > 0 then x <<< y else x >>> y fi >> - The undocumented baselib function `sunlog2` has been removed. - This release has been Valgrind-checked on x86 Linux to ensure there are no memory leaks.
