The pec package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

The intent of pec is to provide a drop-in replacement for C, but with modern language features. Pec is a procedural language with a functional/declarative feel. Programming in pec is very similar to monadic programming in Haskell. The primary use case for pec is to provide a productive environment for writing safe, performant embedded applications.

Readme for pec-0.1

Introducing the pec language and pec embedded compiler.

The intent of pec is to provide a drop-in replacement for C, but with
modern language features.  Pec is a procedural language with a
functional/declarative feel.  Programming in pec is very similar to
monadic programming in Haskell.  The primary use case for pec is to
provide a productive environment for writing safe, performant embedded
applications.

Feature list
  - Easy C integration
  - No garbage collection
  - Strong typing with Hindley-Milner type inference
  - Safe pointers, no indexing out of bounds
  - Variants, vectors, tuples, records, arbitrary sized integers
  - User defined, polymorphic data structures
  - Parametric polymorphism, ad-hoc polymorphism, laziness (strict by
    default), user-defined operators, etc.
  - Modules
  - Compiles to LLVM (C planned)
  - Haskell-ish syntax/layout
  - BSD license

Pec (the language and the compiler) is in the alpha stage of
development.  The compiler is implemented in Haskell and has a very
small codebase (thanks to several existing Haskell tools/libraries).

You can download and install pec via cabal or access the git
repository on github (git@github.com:stevezhee/pec.git).

Any feedback on the design and/or implementation of pec would be
greatly appreciated :)

Thanks,
Brett
