FreeST: Context-free Session Types in a Functional Language
FreeST is an experimental concurrent programming language. Based on a core linear functional programming language, it features primitives to fork new threads, and for channel creation and communication. A powerful type system of context-free session types governs the interaction on channels. The compiler builds on a novel algorithm for deciding type equivalence of context-free session types. This abstract provides a gentle introduction to the language and discusses the validation process and runtime system.
