Overview

Pail

Pail is a programming language based on pairs; just as Lisp stands for LISt Processing, Pail stands for PAIr Language.

This is the reference distribution for Pail.

The Pail programming language is documented in the literate source code of its reference interpreter, Pail.lhs, which can be found in the src subdirectory. Some tests, in Falderal format, which might clarify the intended behaviour can also be found in Pail.markdown in the tests subdirectory.
