SETL is a set-theoretically oriented language of very high level whose repertoire of semantic objects includes finite sets, ordered n-tuples, and sets of ordered n-tuples useable as mappings. This two-part paper studies the optimization problems associated with such a language. The first issue studied is that of copy optimization, i.e. the discovery of cases in which changes to a compound data object can be made 'differentially' without recopying the whole of the object. The second part of the… CONTINUE READING
