Shen is a cool language in the spirit of Lisp that modernizes it and is backed by cutting-edge research on
programming languages. It gives very thoughtful answers to problems we, the programmers' global tribe, are
Shen is a natural evolutionary step along the long, winding path that is Lisp history. Many modern programming
languages are absorbing features that Lisp innovated long ago, but still the most exciting languages are Lisps.
Shen ... has a logic-based type system with capabilities beyond even Haskell.
As I read more about [Shen], I was smitten. A modern, functional Lisp with pattern matching, currying, and an
optional, very powerful static type system? Sign me up!
Something I found intriguing about Shen was that it was specifically designed for portability. It is implemented
in a language called K Lambda, which is a tiny Lisp consisting of only 46 functions. Port K Lambda and you have
