    Source code for the Pipefish programming language

  • To recap, for anyone who's so far managed to avoid learning how Charm works --- it embodies the Functional Core/Imperative Shell pattern, in that the language is divided into commands (which have effects but don't return values) and functions (which return values but don't have effects). Commands can call commands and functions, but functions can only call other functions, and so the effectful part of one's code ends up being a very thin layer at the top of the call stack. The commands themselves consist of imperative state-affecting instructions, e.g. x = 42, get name from Input("What's your name? "), post "Hello world" to Output(), etc.
