Quirrel compared to R

At OSCON today, John De Goes presented briefly a comparison between Quirrel & R.

Quirrel is a query language for unstructured data.  It uses an enhanced version of JSON, and will work well with MongoDB (binary JSON) databases.   Currently, a demo is available at

They expect to open-source it in the next month or so.   It will build / run "out of the box" on Linux / Mac computers.

Some side-by-side code comparisons appear in the slides on SlideDeck.
