The Ciao Programming Language
Ciao is a programming language that builds up from a logic-based simple kernel, and is designed to be extensible and modular. It supports:
- constraint logic programming (and, in particular, Prolog)
- different levels of modularity (from small to large scale)
- modules as (analysis-friendly) compilation units
- bundles as collections of modules
- packages as modules implementing language extensions (syntactic definitions, compilation options, compiler plugins)
- assertions (as a homogeneous framework that allows static and dynamic verification to work cooperatively in a unified way)
- multiparadigm constructs (meta-programming, higher-order, mutables, concurrency, functions, etc.) and interfacing with foreign code
This repository contains the compiler and Ciao standard libraries.
Together with the
builder bundle it can be used as a minimal Ciao
