+Bhuna
+=====
+
+Bhuna is a small, garbage-collected language with a simple syntax, closures,
+inferred types, lightweight processes, and support for UTF-8 source code.
+
+It was implemented partly to see how closely I could match the performance
+of Lua's interpreter.
+
+It is not well-specified; it was designed more-or-less by fiat of building
+the interpreter.  I originally wrote it on FreeBSD, while figuring out how
+to implement closures (the hard way.)  So for the longest time, building it
+required BSD `make` and the associated support files from FreeBSD.  Now,
+however, it has a self-contained `Makefile` and can be built with GNU `make`.
+
+It is also now covered under a BSD-style license; see the file `LICENSE`.
+
+The Bhuna project is basically dead.  See [Kosheri][] for a virtual machine
+that sprang from its ashes.
