The Icslas language

The Icslas language is a distributed extension of the Scheme programming language. Its main emphasis is on distribution, the ability to run programs on a variety of heterogeneous computers linked with Internet. The Icslas language is supported by DMeroon. The Icslas language will incorporate an object system based on Meroon, first-class modules (not far from the first-class environments described in my latest book), a new macro system (see again the book), concurrent features as explained in a series of papers see pwb , a fault-tolerant garbage collector and the coherency protocol of lcc .
