Fan is a general purpose object-oriented programming language that runs on both JRE and .NET CLR. The language is also a functional programming language in the sense that it supports functions as first-class objects. Concurrency is supported by implementing the Actor Model as used by Erlang. Fan uses static typing but has also support for dynamic typing. Fan uses a curly brace syntax similar to C# and Java.
