CAL
The CAL Actor Language

The CAL actor language is a textual notation for representing the functionality of dataflow actors. It is designed to allow low-entropy descriptions of actors by providing statically analyzable information about the behavior of an actor, such as the number of tokens it produces and consumes in each firing, whether there are any conditions on being able to fire, what those conditions depend on, etc.

The goal is to use this information to more effectively to schedule, compose, and implement those actors.

For more information, have a look at these documents:

We are still developing and changing the language, and discussing new features. If you are interested, look into (or join) the developer mailing list.
