The paper presents a new programming language and its reduction machine. The name of the language is Graal and it is based on the unusual concepts of functional form issued from FP systems and uncurryfied combinator from combinatory logic. It does not use variables but is nevertheless readable. Its reduction machine is new, object-oriented, distributed and modular. It runs very efficiently on classical Von Neumann architectures and can be used to implement other functional languages.
