+powerful programming and scripting capabilities.  Nickle supports a
+variety of datatypes, especially arbitrary precision numbers.
+The programming language vaguely resembles C.  Some things in C which do
+not translate easily are different, some design choices have been made
+differently, and a very few features are simply missing.
+Nickle provides the functionality of UNIX bc, dc and expr in much-improved
+ form.  It is also an ideal environment for prototyping complex algorithms.
+Nickle's scripting capabilities make it a nice replacement for spreadsheets
+in some applications, and its numeric features nicely complement the
+limited numeric functionality of text-oriented languages such as AWK and
+PERL.")
