Phel is a functional programming language that compiles to PHP. It is a dialect of Lisp inspired by Clojure and Janet.
The following example gives a short impression on how Phel looks like:
# Define a namespace (ns my\example) # Define a variable with name "my-name" and value "world" (def my-name "world") # Define a function with name "print-name" and one argument "your-name" (defn print-name [your-name] (print "hello" your-name)) # Call the function (print-name my-name)

Lisp (historically LISP) is a family of programming languages with a long history and a distinctive, fully parenthesized prefix notation. Originally specified in 1958, Lisp is the second-oldest high-level programming language. Only Fortran is older, by one year.
