An Overview of LIFE
DEC/Paris Research Lab.
LIFE (Logic, Inheritance, Functions, and Equations) is a programming
language with a powerful facility for structured type inheritance.
Operationally, LIFE reconciles styles from Functional Programming and
Logic Programming by implicitly delegating control to an automatic
suspension mechanism. This allows interleaving interpretation of
relational and functional expressions which specify abstract
structural dependencies on objects. Together, these features provide
a convenient and versatile power of abstraction for very high-level
expression of constrained data structures. In this talk, I will
overview the operational functionality of LIFE by way of examples.
This work was done while I was at MCC in Austin, Texas.
