|Abstract:||Numerous mechanisms are used to deal with failure of sys- tems or processes, one of which is that of compensating ac- tions. A compensation can be seen as a program which somehow cancels out the effects of another — and by or- ganising code in such a way so as to associate each program with its compensation, enables implicit recovery to a sane state if part of a computation somehow fails. In this paper we present an imperative programming language natively supporting the notion of compensations, thus enabling the programmer to program using a notion of compensations at the source level of the system under development.|
