FLIC is a Functional Language Intermediate Code, intended to provide a common intermediate language between diverse implementations of functional languages, including parallel ones. This paper gives a formal definition of FLIC's syntax and semantics, in the hope that its existence may encourage greater exchange of programs and benchmarks between research groups.
