I would be going for ponylang
as you easily can spot it's an actor based language. I am following this language for quite a bit now. Actors are a concept I really do enjoy arxiv.org/vc/arxiv/papers/1008/1008.1459v8... and they built a language around it :D ....
use "collections" actor Counter var _count: U32 new create() => _count = 0 be increment() => _count = _count + 1 be get_and_reset(main: Main) => main.display(_count) _count = 0 actor Main var _env: Env new create(env: Env) => _env = env var count: U32 = try env.args(1)?.u32()? else 10 end var counter = Counter for i in Range[U32](0, count) do counter.increment() end counter.get_and_reset(this) be display(result: U32) => _env.out.print(result.string())
Mark yes on a theoretical level I agree although erlang is not a pure actor model since it has types which are not actors. But I learned that to truly understand something one has to leave the meta level and gets his hands dirty ... I think theory is important but I like to test my theories against reality :).
