Title:An Equational Specification for the Scheme Language
Author(s):d'Amorim, Marcelo; Rosu, Grigore
Subject(s):programming languages
Abstract:This work describes the formal semantics of Scheme (Based on the publicly available report R5RS) as an equational theory in the Maude rewriting system. The semantics is based on continuations and is highly modular. We briefly investigate the relationship between our methodology for defining programming languages and other semantic formalisms. We conclude by showing some performance results of the interpreter obtained for free from the executable specification.
