Abstract:
This technical report consists of two papers describing the GAEA action equations paradigm. Incremental Dynamic Semantics for Language-based Programming Environments explains why attribute grammars are not suitable for expressing dynamic semantics and presents action equations, an extension of attribute grammars suitable for specifying the static and the dynamic semantics of programming languages. It describes how action equations can be used to generate language-based programming environments that incrementally derive static and dynamic properties as the user modifies and debugs the program. Rapid Prototyping of Concurrent Programming Languages extends this technology to a concurrent framework. It describes an (unimplemented) system that generates a parallel interpreter for the language and provides runtime support for the synchronization primitives and other facilities in the language.
