The developers of Alan combined a programming language with a set of tools to allow you to play or create text-based adventure games. These tools consist of compilers, various interpreters, an IDE (Integrated development environment), map generators, and more.

Relay ladder, structured text, sequential function chart, and function block diagram are the programming languages used to create your ideal PLC program. This software allows you to focus more on PLC programming logic rather than wasting your time on complex syntax. To better your programming experience, you get access to drag-and-drop editing, search-and-replace functions, and tools to verify your program before running it.
