Slang is the language the interpreter and Cog / Spur etc. are written in.

It looks like Smalltalk, but has C semantics. There are no classes or objects, it pretty much only operates on integers and pointers. It can be run directly as Smalltalk (which is what the VM simulator does) but its main purpose is to be transcribed 1-to-1 to C to be compiled by a C compiler into a VM binary.
