What is ECL?
ECL (Enterprise Control Language) is a programming language designed and used with the HPCC system. It is specifically designed for data management and query processing. ECL code is written using the ECL IDE programming development tool.
ECL is a transparent and implicitly parallel programming language which is both powerful and flexible. It is optimized for data-intensive operations, declarative, non-procedural and dataflow oriented. ECL uses intuitive syntax which is modular, reusable, extensible and highly productive. It combines data representation and algorithm implementation.
