functional programming language based on term rewriting

Pure is a functional programming language based on term rewriting. It has a modern syntax featuring curried function applications, lexical closures and equational definitions with pattern matching, and thus is somewhat similar to languages of the Haskell and ML variety. But Pure is also a very dynamic and reflective language, and is more like Lisp in this respect. The interpreter has an LLVM backend to do JIT compilation, hence programs run blazingly fast and interfacing to C modules is easy. The libraries are licensed under LGPL-3+, the interpreter is GPL-3+, and the examples are BSD-licensed.


To install pure, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts
