A combmator called a pipe is proposed for combining functions in a hnear order. Examples suggest that semantic rules using pipes are easy to read and understand, even for readers with little knowledge of semantics The readability is a consequence ot the operational mtunion associated with pipes The operatJonal v~ew is that each function connected by a pipe is handed a finite sequence of values Each function takes zero or more arguments from the right end of the sequence, replaces the arguments… CONTINUE READING
