Created by User:MagiMaster in 2006 (and conceived much earlier). Its main goal is to use lazy evaluation and have functions as first-class objects. Also, it tries to do everything as a function definition.

Currently this specification is incomplete.

## Example

A simple example is the cat program:

main()=output(input())

Another example:

fib(0)=1 fib(1)=1 fib(n)=+(fib(-(n,1)),fib(-(n,2))) main()=output(fib(input()))

## Built-in functions

- +(x,y), -(x,y), *(x,y), /(x,y), %(x,y)
- input(), output(n)

## Computational class

Lazy is Turing-complete as it includes the μ-recursive functions.
To show this, the only non-trivial function to define is *μy f(y,x1,...,xk)* (which does not actually have y as parameter, y is bound by the *μ*), which for a specific f can be given as follows:

μy f(y,x1,...,xk)= g(0,x1,...,xk) g(n,x1,...,xk) = if0(f(n,x1,...,xk),n,g(+(n,1),x1,...,xk)) if0(0,a,b) = a if0(n,a,b) = b
