  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  Euclid 
 
    (Named  after  the  Greek  geometer,  fl  ca  300  BC.)  A 
  {Pascal}  descendant  for  development  of  verifiable  system 
  software.  No  {goto},  no  {side  effects},  no  global 
  assignments,  no  functional  arguments,  no  nested  procedures,  no 
  floats,  no  {enumeration  types}.  Pointers  are  treated  as 
  indices  of  special  arrays  called  collections.  To  prevent 
  {aliasing},  Euclid  forbids  any  overlap  in  the  list  of  actual 
  parameters  of  a  procedure.  Each  procedure  gives  an  imports 
  list,  and  the  compiler  determines  the  identifiers  that  are 
  implicitly  imported.  Iterators 
 
  Ottawa  Euclid  is  a  variant.
