Lil is part of the technology that powers Decker, a multimedia creative tool inspired by HyperCard. Decker uses Lil for adding custom behavior to decks and the widgets within. Lil is designed to be learned in layers, but it is a richly multi-paradigm language which incorporates ideas from imperative, functional, declarative, and vector-oriented languages.

Example from the web:
on mode a do # line comment r:() each x in a r[x]:1+r[x] end extract first key orderby value desc from r end mode[1,2,2,3,4,2,1]
