Alef is a dead-end technology and was used as part of the Plan 9 operating systems. Developed in the late 80s to early 90s by members of Bell Labs, Alef combined features from C and other languages. Though it influenced later projects like Go, Alef itself never gained widespread adoption or use outside of its original context with Plan 9.
