Designed by Julian Moss to create small, fast programs, Visual DialogScript (VDS) is an interpreted programming language for Microsoft Windows.

However, because VDS programs have access to the Windows application programming interfaces (API), VDS can be used to write applications capable of performing advanced tasks.

VDS syntax is simple and similar to MS-DOS batch language. Designed for efficiency, each command occupies only one line, and its purpose is clearly describable in English. Variables are typeless and are able to hold several kinds of information, including numbers or text. Functions are distinguished with names that begin with an @-sign, as in a spreadsheet.

VDS can be extended through dynamic link libraries (DLLs), which are special files called extensions. They can be distributed with scripts or compiled .EXE files.
