Title:A Rewriting Based Approach to OO Language Prototyping and Design
Author(s):Hills, Mark; Rosu, Grigore
Subject(s):programming languages
Abstract:This paper introduces a framework for the rapid prototyping of object oriented programming languages. This framework is based on specifying the semantics of a language using term rewriting and a continuation-based representation of control. The notation used, called K, has been developed specifically for programming languages to overcome limitations in more general rewriting notation, and provides for more compact and modular language definitions. The K notation is used to define KOOL, a dynamic object-oriented language with many features found in mainstream object-oriented languages. The ability to rapidly prototype language features is shown both in the definition of KOOL and in the creation of a concurrent extension to the language.
