The examine of variety structures for programming languages now touches many components of desktop technological know-how, from language layout and implementation to software program engineering, community safeguard, databases, and research of concurrent and allotted structures. This booklet bargains obtainable introductions to key rules within the box, with contributions by means of specialists on every one topic.

The issues coated contain specified variety analyses, which expand uncomplicated kind structures to offer them a greater grip at the run time habit of structures; kind structures for low-level languages; purposes of sorts to reasoning approximately laptop courses; sort conception as a framework for the layout of subtle module structures; and complex strategies in ML-style kind inference.

Advanced issues in forms and Programming Languages builds on Benjamin Pierce's Types and Programming Languages (MIT Press, 2002); lots of the chapters could be obtainable to readers conversant in uncomplicated notations and methods of operational semantics and sort systems—the fabric coated within the first 1/2 the sooner book.

Advanced themes in forms and Programming Languages can be utilized within the school room and as a source for execs. such a lot chapters contain workouts, ranging in hassle from quickly comprehension tests to tough extensions, many with ideas.

Sample text

In order to avoid creation of two sets of operational rules, one for linear data, which is deallocated when used, and one for unrestricted data, which is never q deallocated, we define an auxiliary function, S ∼ x, to manage the differences. (S1 ,x un S∼x lin v,S2 ) ∼ x = = S1 ,S2 S Aside from these details, the operational semantics is standard. Preservation and Progress In order to prove the standard safety properties for our language, we need to be able to show that programs are well-formed after each step in evaluation.

It is also polymorphic (via parameters pa and pb ) in the way those elements are used. Overall, the function maps lists with linear spines to lists with linear spines. t. Here, a and p are the type parameters to a function with body t. The body does not need to be a value, like in ML, since we will run the polymorphic function every time a pretype or qualifier is passed to the function as an argument. The syntax t [P] or t [q] applies the function t to its pretype or qualifier argument. Figure 1-11 summarizes the syntactic extensions to the language.

The material presented in this chapter is derived from Hofmann’s work. One of the most successful and extensive applications of substructural type systems in programming practice can be found in the Concurrent Clean programming language (Nöcker, Smetsers, van Eekelen, and Plasmeijer, 1991). Clean is a commercially developed, pure functional programming language. It uses uniqueness types (Barendsen and Smetsers, 1993), which are a variant of linear types, and strictness annotations (Nöcker and Smetsers, 1993) to help support concurrency, I/O and in-place update of arrays.
