"The objective of this brief article is to be very practical with code examples as well as step by step simple instructions. I won’t reprise the historical and technical details that led us to developing this new programming language. Please feel free to visit the main Falcon Programming Language site for plenty of details.

"The Falcon p. l. presents multiple programming paradigms with a unique blend of interconnected concepts. Procedural, functional, both prototype and class based-object oriented, message oriented and tabular programming. Each of these extending into the others gives you the freedom to choose the perfect blend to represent the problem at hand. Falcon allows you, the programmer and the real human, to overcome the limitations of many programming languages that force you to restrict your thinking. Falcon allows you to just follow the flow of your thoughts. "Apply Mind over matter" is the motto for Falcon."
