by language is dead
general-purpose, high-performance, implicitly parallel, deadlock-free dataflow programming language

ANI is probably unlike any programming language you've encountered; it does away with state, variables, commands, stacks, and memory itself, as we know it. In ANI, the compiler sequences the ordering of your program logic for you, laying out as much of it as possible in parallel, and guaranteeing that the resulting binary will be statically safe and deadlock-free. Best of all, compiler technology has advanced to the point where you don't need to understand any of this to leverage it; that's anic's job!

Crazy? Most definitely. And yet strangely enough, it works!

Try to imagine, if you will, the amount of time and effort it would take you to write a bug-free, efficiently multithreaded real-time clock + infix calculator hybrid application in a language like C.

While you're thinking, here's a compacted but 100% complete implementation in ANI -- and this isn't even leveraging any libraries!

a=[int\]<-0; op=[char\]<-' '; b=[int\]<-0; r=[int\]<-0;
0 { clock => [int ms] { ("\r" + ms/1000.0 + ":" + a + op + b + "=" + r) ->std.out; 1 std.delay (ms+1) clock} };
inLoop => {\>a \>op \>b inLoop};
\\op ?? {'+': (\a+\b) '-': (\a-\b) '*': (\a*\b) '/': (\a/\b) : 0} <->r;
