 Yorick Plays a Role

Unix Review tells us about Yorick.

"Yorick is an "Interpreted Scientific Programming Language". One user, meteorologist Hugh Pumphrey of the University of Edinburg, explains it as "like interpreted C with graphics". The payoff for Yorick users is the ease with which they can make such pictures as this diagram of the airflow and pressure regime past a simple airfoil. Scientists justly find these gorgeous."
