E is an object-capability programming language and platform for writing distributed, secure, and robust software, and is the primary subject of this wiki.

E is described by two draft books:

  • Robust Composition: Towards a Unified Approach to Access Control and Concurrency Control
    • MarkM's dissertation. Explains the rationale, philosophy, and goals of E and related systems.
  • E in a Walnut
    • Marc Stiegler's draft tutorial book on the E programming language.

E's grammar is similiar to other C languages but its semantics have more in common with various lisps.

This page is a stub; it should be expanded with more information. If doing so, check the original E web site and the mailing list archives for content which could be moved into this page.
