Limbo is a concurrent programming language initially designed for Inferno, an operating system for distributed systems. Limbo is strongly typed and supports automatic garbage collection. It uses the CSP (Communicating Sequential Processes) style of concurrency to facilitate communication between concurrent processes without relying on shared memory. The language can compile either to machine code or to Dis virtual machine instructions which makes it platform independent.
