Potential is a systems programming language designed for high reliability. It is an example of a typed assembly language.

Key features:

  • Automatically manages pointer aliases, invalidating aliases when changes are made to data that have an effect on the underlying type
  • Automatically tracks the evolution of machine state as instructions sequence together
  • Haskell’s type inference eliminates the need for type annotations, while ghci provides the ability to inspect the types of functions to ensure that the code you write has the effect you want
  • Easy to extend and modify the language to suit your application’s needs

The Potential compiler requires GHC 6.12 and the Haskell Platform. (Programs written in Potential do not rely on the Haskell runtime.)
