The idris package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

Idris is a general purpose language with full dependent types. It is compiled, with eager evaluation. Dependent types allow types to be predicated on values, meaning that some aspects of a program's behaviour can be specified precisely in the type. The language is closely related to Epigram and Agda. There is a tutorial at Features include:
