NWScript is based upon the C programming language and contains most of the C language syntax. NWScript does not support arrays, nor the Standard C library, such as printing to the screen, file I/O, nor system calls. These limitations are of little consequence to the NWN game, as an existing library of functions and functionality is provided with the game.
