Meaning of ALEF

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A programming language from bell labs. ALEF boasts few new ideas but is instead a careful synthesis of ideas from other languages. The result is a practical general purpose programming language which was once displacing c as their main implementation language. Both shared variables and message passing are supported through language constructs.

A window system, user interface, operating system network code, news reader, mailer and variety of other tools in plan 9 are now implemented using ALEF.
