Short Description
The final release of the Alms programming language
Full Description

Alms is a general-purpose programming language that supports practical affine types. To offer the expressiveness of Girard’s linear logic while keeping the type system light and convenient, Alms uses expressive kinds that minimize notation while maximizing polymorphism between affine and unlimited types.

Alms was last released in 2012. It requires a particular version of GHC 7 to build, and I'm not planning to update it for newer GHCs. This image contains an Ubuntu 14.04 system with GHC 7.6.3 and Alms 0.6.9, the (probable) final release. There should be an alms executable in the current working directory (/alms) when it starts, so you can run it with

$ ./alms

Also see examples in the examples/ subdirectory.
