AMPLE is the name of two different programming languages.
AMPLE (Advanced Music Production Language and Environment) was a FORTH-like programming language for programming the 500/5000 series of add-on music synthesisers for the BBC Microcomputer. AMPLE was produced by Hybrid Technologies, Cambridge, England in the mid-1980s. Many AMPLE programs were published in Acorn User magazine.
AMPLE (Advanced Multi-Purpose LanguagE) is a scripting programming language and a part of the Falcon Framework software framework developed for the Apollo/Domain computer by Mentor Graphics. It is a loosely typed C-like programming language, with for example vector types added.
As the Apollo/Domain was very popular in computer-aided engineering (especially in electronic design automation), AMPLE is still used in several Mentor Graphics applications such as Design Architect IC and IC Station. These tools are built on the Falcon Framework, and run on Unix and Linux workstations. Some of the PCB design tools even run on Windows NT.
