Angelscript (http://www.angelcode.com/angelscript/) is quite similar.
It does still have a few (minor) bugs and quirks, but nothing too serious. It's very nice and usable.
The author has his own forum on this site (look further down the page on the index).

I like Lua, but it's syntax is fairly different of course.
Any particular reason why it has to be similar to C++?

I haven't tried it yet(just came across it two minutes ago) but here's a JIT compiled scripting language called TKScript
The language itself looks nice and clean, so maybe look into that. I'll also try it out soon and post a topic on how that goes...

Hope that helps,

I suspect it's because the OP is use to C++ style syntax and wants to carry it with him into scripting land.

Personally I was happy to cast off the C++ syntax in favour of Lua, if anything I find it clearer, but ya know *shrugs*

I just find C++ to be a much cleaner and easier to read code(but hey that is what i learned and have used for the past 8 year including PHP which is very close to c++) and I can write code a lot faster in c++/PHP than I would is say ruby/lua. I just don't want to go through learning a different(and personally akword) syntax, I already have to remember c++, php, javascript and I find myself from time to time mixing them up(mainly php and javascript).

I am also not in a position where I am being throw into a project that is already using a scripting language as if I were then yea I would have to learn it but I like to see what other options are out there if possible.
