Logiweb has a feature for expressing imperative programs which can interact with their surroundings. Programs expressed using that feature are called Logiweb machines.

A machine consists of a computing engine, an interface, a boot handler, and a cache. All Logiweb machines have the same engine and interface but may have different handlers and caches. The handler and cache define the behavior of the machine.

The engine is pure functional and is able to compute the value of terms. The interface is imperative and is able to perform input and output. The handler is a term. The cache is the cache of a Logiweb page.
