This paper presents the results of the EFOOL project. EFOOL (Evaluation of Functional and Object-Oriented Languages) is a quantitative evaluation of the functional and object-oriented paradigms. The aim of the project is to investigate whether or not the quality of code produced using a functional language is significantly different from that produced using… (More)
Neuroblastoma (NB) is the most common extracranial solid tumor in children. NB tumors and derived cell lines are phenotypically heterogeneous. Cell lines are classified by phenotype, each having distinct differentiation and tumorigenic properties. The neuroblastic phenotype is tumorigenic, has neuronal features and includes stem cells (I-cells) and neuronal… (More)
This paper reports on an investigation into the use of a design metric (the number of test cases) to predict code quality, development and testing time during the production of functional and object-oriented programs. We report on whether a significant difference exists in the number of test cases for equivalent functional and object-oriented programs as… (More)

This paper describes an investigation into measuring the quality of functional programs. The work reported here is part of a larger, ongoing study into a q u a n titative analysis of the eeect of utilizing diierent programming paradigms on code quality. Prior to undertaking such a comparative analysis it is necessary to establish a baseline of quality… (More)
The importance of replication of software engineering ezperi-mentation to validate ezperimental results, (considered normal practice in other scientific domains) has often been overlooked. This paper presents the results of an internal repli-cation of a case study which quantitatively investigates and compares the quality of code produced in a functional… (More)
