Operators in functional languages such as APL and FFP are a useful programming concept. However, this concept cannot be fully exploited in these languages because of certain constraints. It is proposed that an operator should be associated with a structure having the algebraic properties on which the operator's behavior depends. This is illustrated by introducing a language that provides mechanisms for defining structures and operators on them. Using this language, it is possible to describe… CONTINUE READING
