Extension of Java with parametric types, multi-methods, and more

Nice is a new object-oriented programming language. It extends Java with many advanced features: * Parametric types: this is especially useful for containers (lists, hash-tables) and allows for shorter and safer code. * Anonymous functions: functions can be created and manipulated as first-class expressions, just like in Lisp and ML. This is much lighter than Java's anonymous classes in many situations, for instance with listeners in a GUI. * Multi-methods: they allow methods to be defined outside classes. This means that new methods can be defined on classes that belong to a different package (even in java.*). Multi-methods alse extend usual methods with the possibility to dispatch on every argument, instead of only the receiver class. This supersedes the Visitor pattern. * Tuples: this allows in particular methods to return several values. * Optional parameters to methods. Optional parameters have a default value that is used when the parameter is not present in the call. This is much simpler than in Java, where one has to write several versions of the method for each combination of parameters. * Nice detects more errors during compilation: programs written in Nice never throw NullPointerException nor ClassCastException.

More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
