Ftwalk is a high level script programming language, very similar to awk, but greatly extended to include a richer type system, object-oriented features, 300+ built-in functions, extensibility through dynamic libraries, etc., which makes it roughly comparable to languages like Perl. It does file tree searches, and was originally used to implement selective redundant copy backup stores. It can be run interactively as a calculator.
