While Java is a very good vehicle for implementing these interpreters, it is not a good conceptual representation because it is much too wordy and the OO structure obscures the simple algebraic structure of abstract syntax and structural recursion used to defin interpretation.
A secondary theme is software engineering. All of the programming assignments in this course are conducted in Java using test-driven development and pair-programming, two of the major tenets of Extreme Programming.
COMP consists of three parts: The first part focuses on specifying the syntax and the semantics of programming languages. The former is introduced via simple parsing translations of program text into abstract syntax.
More detailed aspects of parsing such as lexical analysis and advanced parsing methods are left to COMP , a course on compilers. The semantics of a comprehensive collection of programming language constructs is specified using interpreters and reduction textual rewriting systems.
The constructs include arithmetical and conditional expressions, lexical binding of variables, blocks, first-class functions, assignment and mutuation, simple control constructs loop exits, first-class continuations, simple threads , and dynamic dispatch. The second part illustrates how interpreters and reduction semantics can be used to analyze important behaviorial properties of programming languages.
Two examples are covered: type safety and memory safety. Type safety guarantees that programs respect syntactically defined type abstraction boundaries and never raise certain classes of error signals. Memory safety guarantees that programs release memory if it is provably useless for the remainder of the evaluation.
Type safety typically depends on memory safety. You will need to define Scheme in K, with a translation of this definition into Maude so that it can be executed. A parser will be provided for the latter portion, so you will not need to worry about syntax issues. The best way to get started is to re familiarize yourself with Scheme.
If you do not have it installed anywhere, you should download it. If you do not have a machine where you can do this installation, let me know -- it does not appear to be installed on the CSIL or EWS machines.
This contains information on the parts of Scheme that you are expected to implement. There may be additional clarifications; please watch the newsgroup and this page. This new emphasis meshes well with the way the domains and operations of the interpreters are described. With lucid prose and elegant code, this book provides the most concrete introduction to the few building blocks that give rise to a wide variety of programming languages.
I recommend it to my students and look forward to using it in my courses. Daniel P. Friedman and David Thrane Christiansen.
