Title:A Rewrite Framework for Language Definitions and for Generation of Efficient Interpreters
Author(s):Hills, Mark; Serbanuta, Traian Florin; Rosu, Grigore
Subject(s):programming languages
Abstract:A rewrite logic semantic definitional framework for programming languages is introduced, called K, together with partially automated translations of K language definitions into rewriting logic and into C. The framework is exemplified by defining SILF, a simple imperative language with functions. The translation of K definitions into rewriting logic enables the use of the various analysis tools developed for rewrite logic specifications, while the translation into C allows for very efficient interpreters. A suite of tests show the performance of interpreters compiled from K definitions.
