Fishkill is a minimalist functional programming language. Some might call it a toy language. The project is based entirely on pattern matching of function arguments. There are no data types (or you might say there is a single data type). Instead, arbitrary constructors can be defined by just using them in a program.
In general, the evaluation model of the language is that of a strict and pure functional programming language. There are no side effects, referential transparency is always preserved. This means the result of a function always only depends on the values of its input arguments. This allows optimizations such as factoring out function calls with constant arguments and caching of function results to avoid computing the same value more than once.
