The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015): Miranda
(From the Latin for "admirable", also the heroine
of Shakespeare's "Tempest") A lazy purely functional
programming language and interpreter designed by David
Turner of the University of Kent in the early 1980s and
implemented as a product of his company, Research Software
Limited. Miranda combines the main features of KRC and
SASL with strong typing similar to that of ML.
It features terse syntax using the offside rule for
indentation. The type of an expression is inferred from the
source by the compiler but explicit type declarations are
also allowed. It has nested pattern-matching, list
comprehensions and modules. It uses operator sections
rather than lambda abstractions. User types are algebraic,
and in early versions could be constrained by laws.
It is implemented using SKI combinator reduction.
Originally implemented for Unix, there are versions for most
UNIX-like platforms including Intel PC under Linux. The
KAOS operating system is written entirely in Miranda.
There are translators from Miranda to Haskell mira2hs
(/pub/misc/mira2hs) and to LML mira2lml (/pub/misc/mira2lml).
