Programming Languages

Please look for Computer Programming Languages, Programming Languages List, Different Programming Languages and Programming Languages History to find more Programming Languages information.


  • Pseudocode

  • Pseudocode is a generic way of describing an algorithm using the conventions of programming languages, without using language-specific syntax.An example of how pseudocode differs from regular code is below.Regular code (written in PHP):{}{}If the value of foo is equal to barotherwise, make "yesFoo" falseA similar example to the preceding one is shown below.Regular code (written in BlitzBasic):yesFoo=TrueyesFoo=Falseif the value of foo is equal to barotherwise, make "yesFoo" false


  • ANSI C

  • ANSI C (Standard C) is one standardized version of the C programming language.Most programming languages have differences from one implementation to another. For example, two different C compilers may have different feature sets, or may implement certain parts of the language in subtly different ways. The platform on which the program is being run can also influence its behavior: different operating systems can behave in different ways. This creates a problem for programmers who wish to write porting software — the more differences between compilers and platforms exist, the more work that must be done to port software to another system.


  • Binding

  • Binding can mean:* Binding (computer science) - a tie (for example) to certain names in programming languages* Binding (linguistics) - a property relating to anaphors (pronouns and R-expressions) and c-command* Bookbinding - the protective cover of a book and the art of constructing this* Ski binding - a device for connecting a foot to a ski* In the usage of LDAP - authentication* In baking, the effect of egg (food) or of flax* Law: executed with proper legal authority (i.e."a binding contract").


  • BASIC Programming Language

  • BASIC is a family of high-level programming languages. Originally devised as an easy-to-use programming language, it became widespread on home microcomputers in the 1980s, and remains popular to this day in a handful of heavily evolved dialects. It was devised in 1963 by Profs. John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz of Dartmouth College.BASIC's name stands for Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code, which stems from the name of an unpublished paper by Thomas Kurtz.

  • Knowledge Representation System

  • The Knowledge Representation System (KRS) is a semantic frames-based language built on Common Lisp programming language.Category:Domain-specific programming languages


  • Tail Recursion

  • In computer science, tail recursion is a special case of recursion that can be transformed into an iteration. It is used in functional programming languages where the declarative programming and explicit handling of state (computer science) emphasize recursive functions that rapidly fill the stack (computing). Replacing recursion with iteration drastically decreases the amount of stack space used and improves efficiency.When a function is called, the computer must "remember" the place it was called from, the return address, so that it can return to that location with the result once the call is complete.


  • Oberon Programming Language

  • Oberon is a reflective programming language created in the late 1980s by Professor Niklaus Wirth (creator of the Pascal, Modula, and Modula-2 programming languages) and his associates at ETHZ in Switzerland. The name is from the moon of Uranus, Oberon.Oberon is also, somewhat confusingly, the name of the Oberon operating system, written in Oberon, for the Ceres workstation (built around the National Semiconductor 32032 CPU) and for the Chameleon workstation. Oberon, the language, has now been ported to many other operating systems, and is even available for the Java platform, where Oberon source code compiles to source code in Java, or to bytecode for a Java virtual machine. The Oberon operating system is also available for several other hardware platforms than the original workstation.

    Programming Languages in the Future
    In the future, mainstream programming languages will: allow base classes to be extended eliminate several new classes of errors from the language by design accessing arrays out-of-bounds dereferencing null pointers integer overflow accessing uninitialized variables introduce new concepts dependent types dependent functions universal quantification incorporate Haskell-style comprehensions perform lenient evaluation (as opposed to lazy evaluation) address concurrency through software transactional memory implicit data and thread parallelism So says Tim Sweeney who gave a talk at POPL entitled The Next Mainstream Programming Languages: A Game Developers Perspective via Lambda the Ultimate....

    Bendy classes and dynamic programming
    Jack Herrington has published this article: Going dynamic with PHP claiming to show some things PHP can do which Java can't. Okaaaay... This is another of the articles in the meme that dynamic languages are great, and rigid languages are uncomfortable. I don't know if I got the analogy right this time, let me know please? The problem he poses is about implementing the database interface classes. The traditional method might be to write one class per database table, expose get/set methods for each field, etc. You'd end up with a tedious implementation and a lot of typing of highly similar code. He poses three possible solutions, and claims that PHP implements the best of the three. One problem with the article is there's more than three possible solutions. The problem with the proposed solution is it doesn't give early warning of broken code, leading to greater expense to fix coding problems. Whever a writer presents a problem .. and then presents a selected list of solutions .. the writer (maybe unknowingly) is trying to limit the readers thinking to the given solution set. But what if there are other solutions the author doesn't present? ...
