The ATS Programming Language

It’s on the far bleeding edge as far as languages go, so I doubt any businesses use it. The largest practical ATS program I know of is polyglot: https://github.com/vmchale/polyglot

I have not programmed in it myself, but I have read about it and watched the presentation A (Not So Gentle) Introduction To Systems Programming In ATS. ATS is a lot closer to C than Haskell or Idris, at least for the kind of programming it is meant for. You can see ATS as a language that allows you to safely do the things you'd normally do in unsafe C (or Rust), by letting you provide an actual proof that what you're doing is OK. I don't think anyone has ever said ATS is particularly pleasant to program in, but there are some crazy people like Vanessa McHale that actually write real programs in it. I still use her polyglot tool for source code listings. It's the only "real world" ATS program I have seen.
