A language called ERD, with absURD syntax.
For example file modifying would be like

pkg : (fs);
pkg : (debt);
!txt => pkg : (txtformat);
get file("modded.txt") into $page => {
  set $file write(!txt (ascii){
    Sample Text
  });
  export $file => ();
  debt : ($file) => {
    throw => ();
  }
}

and stupid things like this. Note debt : ($file) => {} which is just shorthand for detect : (existof : ($file)) <-> true; => {} which is awful
And Hello World be like

pkg : (io);
print => {
  Hello World!
}
export => ();
