LinearML (or LiML) is a programming language designed to write efficient parallel programs.
Its main characteristics are:
* Purely functional
* Statically typed
* Strict evaluation order
In LiML, the default is, every value has a linear type, this implies:
* Thread-safe copy-less message-passing between threads
* Thread-safe IOs
* In-place updates for the vast majority of operations (better cache hits)
* Statically enforced memory management.
In other words, there is no garbage collector, the memory usage is safe, it's garanteed statically !
To compile LiML, follow the instructions in INSTALL
