Elegant started as a compiler generator based on attributed grammars and has grown into a full programming language. Although it has been inspired by the abstraction mechanisms found in modern functional languages, Elegant is an imperative language that does not discourage side-effects. Elegant is written in Elegant. (Beware of any language implementation not written in that same language!) and has been used for internal use within Philips for about 10 years now. In this period, dozens of compilers have been built with Elegant.
