Most of it is written in C, some parts of the build system use a bit of
Perl.  A quick look at the source code would have allowed you to answer

you can also have the various scripting extensions written in Scheme
(Script-Fu or the newer Tiny-Fu), Perl and Python.

Please have a look at:
  http://www.gimp.org/source/  (stable version)
  http://developer.gimp.org/   (development version)
That will give you all the necessary information.  In addition, once
you have a look at the source code, please read the README and INSTALL
files.  If you get the code from CVS, you can also have a look at the

The latest version of the source code is in CVS.  If you want tarballs,
then the latest stable version is 2.0.2 and the latest unstable version
is 2.1.1, available from ftp.gimp.org and its mirrors.  This information
is also available from the web sites listed above.  Please have a look
at them.
