An incremental computation is one that is performed repeatedly on nearly identical inputs. Incremental computations occur naturally in many environments, such as compilere, languagebased editors, spreadsheets, and formatters. This article describes a proposed tool for making it easy to write incremental programe. The tool consists of a programming language, INC, and a set of compile-time transformations for the primitive elements of INC. A programmer defines an algorithm in INC without regard… CONTINUE READING
