Source Code

Hilvl is a programming language that is versatile but with a very small syntax. All code in hilvl are single-argument invocations of actions that belong to services. Services are the fundamental building blocks of a hilvl program. And the name hilvl reflects how this is a higher level of abstraction than objects and functions.


Example from the web:
@ var foo = 42 @ var bar = (2 + 40) @ . foo == (@ . bar) then @ set foo = 0 @ var myList = 1 2 3 @ . myList loop @ set foo = (@ . foo + (@ . element)) @ var myMap = Map of "firstname" , "Ola" "lastname" , "Nordmann" @ var MyService := @ var myAction : @ . argument + 10 MyService myAction (@ . foo) // foo is now 6, and this returns 16
