PIL

📄️ introduction

Polynomial Identity Language (PIL) is a novel domain-specific language useful for defining state machines. The aim for creating PIL is to provide developers a holistic framework for both constructing state machines through an easy-to-use interface, and abstracting the complexity of the proving mechanisms. One of the main peculiarities of PIL is its modularity, which allows programmers to define parametrizable state machines, called namespaces, which can be instantiated from larger state machines. Building state machines in a modular manner makes it easier to test, review, audit and formally verify even large and complex state machines. In this regard, by using PIL, developers can create their own custom namespaces or instantiate namespaces from some public library.
