Laby is a small program to learn how to program with ants and spider webs. You have to move an ant out of a labyrinth, avoid spider webs, move rocks, etc.

Using Laby, you can learn OCaml, C, C++, Java, Prolog, Ruby, Pascal, JavaScript, Python, Lua, Vala, Scheme, Go and PHP. Other bindings can easily be added to support new programming languages.
