Moby is an experiment in language design and implementation. Our goal is to combine support for class-based object-oriented programming and higher-order concurrency with the desirable features of ML-like languages: advanced module systems, parametric polymorphism, inductive datatypes, pattern matching, and first-class functions. The Moby project started out as a testbed for the design of ML2000.
Moby is primarily a collaboration between Kathleen Fisher and John Reppy. Much of the work on Moby was done while John Reppy was an MTS at Bell Labs in the Computing Sciences Research Center.
