Hyperlambda is kind of like YAML. YAML is a markup language, and it means “Yet Another Markup Language." YAML has many interesting traits, it’s most important being the ease of declaring tree structures. However, it is also unnecessarily complex, and contains too many syntactic elements – at least for my taste – so I created Hyperlambda. At its core, there are only two syntactic basic elements in Hyperlambda.
A colon separates the name of a tree node from its value.
