SAL Home PROGRAM Languages & Compilers


BOIL (Brunnis Own Interpreter Language) is a C-like language that was developed by netEstate under Linux for special purposes. We are releasing it free of charges under the GPL because it has some special features that you will miss in other similar languages:

  • Distributed programming with RPC (a BOIL-function can be declared as external and will transparently be executed on a distant 'BOIL-server').
  • Accounting and limiting of resources is possible for the whole program or single functions.
  • You can isolate single functions from the rest of the program and disable the use of every library-function. A 'sandbox-environment' for the whole program or single functions is easy to implement.
  • Parsing, definition and deletion of functions at runtime is possible.
