From the front page blurb: "Rosetta Code is a programming chrestomathy site.

From the blurb: "The goal of this wiki is to collect information about the family of concatenative languages. We are interested in both theoretical results, and practical programming advice. Information about any concatenative language is welcome here. We want to bring together disparate language communities and build a common knowledge repository that people can consult to learn more about this family of languages."
