This paper is a summary of ongoing research activities related to the programming language NIL, a high level language for concurrent and distributed systems developed at IBM Yorktown.We first present a short summary of the major features of NIL. These include the NIL system model, which is a dynamically evolving network of loosely coupled processes, communicating by message passing; the abstract NIL computation model; and typestate, which is a refinement of type systems allowing a compiler to… CONTINUE READING
