Compilable scripting language for ATmega328p
I'm thinking RAM limitation is likely to be the biggest problem.   Lua is certainly a widely used scripting language with a very small footprint; I don't know if there are...

how to write EEPROM with extreme safety?
You can create several copies of the data, and write a checksum or some check value in each copy. Write them in a round-robin fashion (so you always overwrite the oldest one) and...
