Has anyone here looked at Oz? <http://www.mozart-oz.org>
>From their introduction:
"In a distributed environment Oz provides language security. That is, all
language entities are created and passed explicitly. An application cannot
forge references nor access references that have not been explicitly given
to it. The underlying representation of the language entities is
inaccessible to the programmer. This is a consequence of having an abstract
store and lexical scoping. Along with first-class procedures, these
concepts are essential to implement a capability-based security policy,
which is important in open distributed computing."
This sure sounds like Trusty Scheme or E to me.
Anyone know more about the Mozart environment and/or the Oz language?
