Hello Forum.

We try to embed the scripting language to our system and we have a two different options to work with.
I mean two languages: Squirrel and Angel Script.

So... I'm asking a guys who already know both of that languages and can tell us a difference between them by your experience of use?

Thank all of you very much.

I know this is a month-old topic, but for anyone reaching this page through Google I'll give my opinion based on my experiences with both. I went with Angel Script at first because the code looked exactly like C++. I ended up switching to Squirrel that same day, though, because I quickly found out that Angel Script doesn't have support for inheritance of native classes in the script (which is the main feature I was looking for). The Angel Script documentation can also get extremely technical, whereas Squirrel uses the simple and familiar stack architecture. Also, Squirrel is both faster (from what I have read) and lighter. In my opinion, Squirrel is easier to learn for beginners, easier to embed (especially with the use of a wrapper such as Sqrat), and is far more versatile in terms of native code to script code interaction.
