The Logiweb language is a pure functional programming language in the sense that it is univocal: If the same Logiweb function is applied to the same arguments twice, it returns the same result the two times.

Logiweb is not completely side-effect free since it has four features (spy, trace, print, and timer) for debugging and efficiency tuning. Those features allow the author (i.e. the programmer) to spy on the internals of computational processes. Debugging facilities are non-portable not intended for other than debugging.
