BRL is a language designed for server-side WWW-based applications,

semantics behind a simple syntax, resulting in code that is easy to
write, read and maintain. This makes it a beautiful language:
BRL, the Beautiful Report Language.
- Fast Development - I found it more than five
times faster than developing with PL/SQL.
- Intuitive - View BRL code in a web browser to
clearly see where generated HTML goes.
- Runs Fast - Uses a next-generation gateway
interface called FastCGI.
- Modular - The architecture of BRL will keep up
with changes in webserver, database and language technology.
