Vigil – A very safe programming language

Posted on

Vigil is a very safe programming language in which you have to swear what kind of result you’ll be returning. If a function fails to uphold what it has sworn to do, it will be deleted from you’re source-code.

You can also define that parameters should have certain desirable properties. If a caller of a function uses a invalid parameter he will be removed from the source-code.

This results into a “bugfree” program. Ex. :D

def fib(n):
    if n < 2:
        result = n
        result = fib(n - 1) + fib(n - 2)

    # fib() never returns negative number.
    swear result >= 0
    return result
