String class; similarly, in Smalltalk , an anonymous function expression a "block" constructs an instance of the library's BlockContext class. Conversely, Scheme contains multiple coherent subsets that suffice to construct the rest of the language as library macros, and so the language designers do not even bother to say which portions of the language must be implemented as language constructs, and which must be implemented as parts of a library.
Design and implementation[ edit ] Programming languages share properties with natural languages related to their purpose as vehicles for communication, having a syntactic form separate from its semantics, and showing language families of related languages branching one from another.
A significant difference is that a programming language can be fully described and studied in its entirety, since it has a precise and finite definition. While constructed languages are also artificial languages designed from the ground up with a specific purpose, they lack the precise and complete semantic definition that a programming language has.
Many programming languages have been designed from scratch, altered to meet new needs, and combined with other languages. Many have eventually fallen into disuse. Although there have been attempts to design one "universal" programming language that serves all purposes, all of them have failed to be generally accepted as filling this role.
Programmers range in expertise from novices who need simplicity above all else, to experts who may be comfortable with considerable complexity. Programs must balance speed, size, and simplicity on systems ranging from microcontrollers to supercomputers. Programs may be written once and not change for generations, or they may undergo continual modification. Programmers may simply differ in their tastes: they may be accustomed to discussing problems and expressing them in a particular language. One common trend in the development of programming languages has been to add more ability to solve problems using a higher level of abstraction.
The earliest programming languages were tied very closely to the underlying hardware of the computer. As new programming languages have developed, features have been added that let programmers express ideas that are more remote from simple translation into underlying hardware instructions. Because programmers are less tied to the complexity of the computer, their programs can do more computing with less effort from the programmer. This lets them write more functionality per time unit.
However, this goal remains distant and its benefits are open to debate. Edsger W. Dijkstra took the position that the use of a formal language is essential to prevent the introduction of meaningless constructs, and dismissed natural language programming as "foolish".
A language's designers and users must construct a number of artifacts that govern and enable the practice of programming. The most important of these artifacts are the language specification and implementation.
Your best strategy is to not make it close. For each student the numeric scores for the assignments and exams are recorded.
If you have any question about your standing in the class, or if some score has been recorded wrong, please contact me.
Students are expected to take the final exam at the scheduled time during finals week. Academic misconduct, such as representing someone else's work as your own, will result in a grade of 'F' for the class.
Please read the CS honor code. If you receive ideas, code, or help from any source, be sure to give proper credit and acknowledgment. Please note that all course work homework, projects, exams, etc is archived. This is done for two purposes: for review by accrediting agencies for the purposes of maintaining the accreditation of the CS program , and to detect plagiarism.
Projects There will be several projects in this course. The projects are not especially hard, but learning new languages takes time. Leave time to experiment and learnthat's the point of the projects.
Do not wait until the last week to start the projects. It is wise to write at least one simple program in the language, before starting the project.
Writing a correct program is important, but learning to do it yourself is more important. Do talk to other students about solving the problems and about learning the languages, library, compilers, and program development tools. Do use the computer science CS help desk. Do not look at other students' current or previous code for the projects. Do not spend your time searching for the project solutions on the Internet.
Do not allow other students current or future to examine or copy your code for the projects. Do not download and sell solutions to the projects. Do not denigrate the honest work of other students by valuing the "answer" to the project over the learning of the language. All programs are analyzed and a measure of similarity with other programs from many sources is calculated. Projects whose programs are very similar to other programs will receive no credit.
