  • These notes are an introduction to .QL, an object-oriented query language for any type of structured data. We illustrate the use of .QL in assessing software quality, namely to find bugs, to compute metrics and to enforce coding conventions. The class mechanism of .QL is discussed in depth, and we demonstrate how it can be used to build libraries of reusable queries.
