The Caml Hump: McCarthy


McCarthy is a simple, first-order functional programming language. The interpreter of this language is also called McCarthy. McCarthy is Turing-complete i.e. it can compute all Turing-computable functions on the integers. It is not suitable for general purpose programming as it offers only an elementary subset of the features found in general purpose programming languages, but it can serve as a model of computation.
