Reia was a modern distributed programming language that emerged in the late 2000s. It was built on the Erlang platform and shared many of its features, including lightweight process isolation and message passing for concurrency, fault tolerance, and hot code swapping without stopping the system. The language introduced new components like syntactic abstractions (e.g., pattern matching syntax), object-oriented constructs, and interoperability with existing libraries written in Erlang or C. Despite its potential for simplifying development of scalable applications on multi-core systems, Reia did not achieve widespread use and is considered largely unavailable as of today.
