[fyzsvyoh] A language for small programs

For a toy computer only intended for writing small programs, an untyped programming language might be fine.  Small programs don't need extravagant software engineering features.

I think Scheme is the best small, untyped language, but the many other scripting languages could be available also.

However, making available both integers and floating point seems difficult to do elegantly without an explicit type system.
