Lua

http://www.lua.org/
Lua is a programming language designed for extending applications. It is also frequently used as a general-purpose, stand-alone language.

It combines simple procedural syntax with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics. Lua is dynamically typed, interpreted from bytecodes, and has automatic memory management with incremental garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping.
