Abstract: This paper describes the Glish {} programming language. Glish is a dynamically typed, array oriented language which also supports distributed clients. Glish has integral, floating point, string, complex, and heterogeneous record values. Any of these values may be used as part of the interpreter to client communications. Both synchronous and asynchronous client interaction are supported. The AIPS++ project (Glendenning 1996) at the NRAO {} is using Glish as the basic command line interface and as the backbone for internal control and communication. Glish may also be used for communication between AIPS++ and telescope control systems; this is the case with the Green Bank Telescope (Garwood 1996).
