ⓘ Wolfram Language

The Wolfram Language is a general multi-paradigm computational language developed by Wolfram Research. It emphasizes symbolic computation, functional programming, and rule-based programming and can employ arbitrary structures and data.

                                     

1. History

The Wolfram Language is a general multi-paradigm computational language developed by Wolfram Research and is the programming language of the mathematical symbolic computation program Mathematica and the Wolfram Programming Cloud. It emphasizes symbolic computation, functional programming, and rule-based programming and can employ arbitrary structures and data.

It includes built-in functions for generating and running Turing machines, creating graphics and audio, analyzing 3D models, matrix manipulations, and solving differential equations. It is extensively documented.

Wolfram Languages core principles that differentiate it from other programming languages includes a built-in knowledgebase, automation in the form of meta-algorithms and superfunctions, a coherently elegant design and structure, built-in natural language understanding, and representation of everything as a symbolic expression.

The Wolfram Language was released for the Raspberry Pi in 2013 with the goal of making it free for all Raspberry Pi users. It was included in the recommended software bundle that the Raspberry Pi Foundation provides for beginners, which caused some controversy due to the Wolfram languages proprietary nature. Plans to port the Wolfram language to the Intel Edison were announced after the boards introduction at CES 2014. In 2019, a link was added to make Wolfram libraries compatible with the Unity game engine, giving game developers access to the languages high level functions.

                                     

2. Naming

The language was officially named in June 2013 although, as the backend of the computing system Mathematica, it has been in use in various forms for over 30 years since Mathematicas initial release. Before 2013, it was internally referred to by several names, such as "M" and "Wolfram Language." Other possible names Wolfram Research considered include "Lingua" and "Express."
