Lilac

Lilac: a functional programming language based on linear logic. We take Abramsky’s term assignment for Intuitionistic Linear Logic (the linear term calculus) as the basis of a functional programming language. This is a language where the programmer must embed explicitly the resource and control information of an algorithm. We give a type reconstruction algorithm for our language in the style of Milner’s W algorithm, together with a description of the implementation and examples of use.
