ICI or Ici may refer to:

ICI (programming language)

ICI is a general purpose interpreted, computer programming language originally developed by Tim Long in the late 1980s. It has dynamic typing and flexible data types, with the basic syntax, flow control constructs and operators of C. It can be considered broadly similar to Perl, with which it is roughly contemporary. Like Perl, it also has tight integration with regular expressions.

ICI is not an acronym.

Primitive data types in ICI include integers, reals, strings, files, safe pointers, and regular expressions. Aggregate data types are arrays, sets, and associative tables. Sets can be heterogeneous, nested, and support the usual set operations: union, intersection, etc.

The language supports subroutines and nested modules. All variables are lexically scoped at the subroutine or module level, but unlike most structured languages, ICI allows the current scope to be adjusted ( Tcl also allows this, for example).

ICI is not object-based, many object programming features can be emulated in the language by using a data structure inheritance feature called super-structures.

To support application development, ICI has C-like file I/O and system interface support, as well as a high-level event trigger facility. The language also has a modest standard library of built-in functions.

Ici (magazine)

ici was an alternative weekly French language magazine distributed in print in Montreal, Quebec, and online through the network from 1997 to 2009.

It had an audience of 89,000 readers a week. On April 29, 2009, Quebecor Media announced that it would cease publication of the newspaper, with the last issue being published on April 30, 2009. The newspaper would live on as ici Week-end, a weekly insert in 24H and on its website.
