Facilis - A Low Level Functional Language
h
CSharpIsGud (643)

Facilis is a strongly typed functional language that aims to be low level. Facilis uses a hand-written recursive descent parser made with love.

Factorial Example

impure foreign putchar(c of u8) -> void
impure foreign tostr(num of void*) -> string

impure write(str of string, start of i32) -> void {
	putchar(str[start])

	if start != str.length() {
		write(str, start + 1)
	}
}

pure fact(i of i32) -> i32 {
	if i == 1 {
		return i
	}

	return i * fact(i - 1)
}

impure main() -> i32 {
    write(tostr(fact(6)), 0)
}

@fuzzyastrocat Yeah, it definitely could be memory, considering how much we allocated memory, because we started off by using plenty of std::strings instead of something like static std::string_views, meaning a good amount of memory is allocated, which may be problematic for large programs.
But if we ever wanted to work on this, we would have to do a full rewrite.

(Also, there is a whole memory leak we didn't do anything about...)
