Etage – A general data-flow framework featuring nondeterminism, laziness and neurological pseudo-terminology

Etage is a data-flow based programming language. It is build upon Haskell and provides nondeterminism and laziness. It is text based and through few basic commands it allows defining operations (neurons) and connections between operations (nerves) along which data can flow. Moreover, program can form a network with loops and is not limited to only tree-like structure.
