The data structures which form an integral part of the Madcap VI programming language are described. The initialization (declarationand constructor) expressions and selector expressions of these structures are defined and their implementation using “codewords” is discussed. Structures, since they can contain references to other structures (including themselves), have the form of directed trees (graphs). Variables of primitive data type (real, complex, etc.) are naturally considered as… 

Relational level data structures for programming languages

  • 2004
A high level of data structure description for programming languages which is called the relational level is described, which involves the use of an implementation facility to allow the programmer to specify the implementation of his relational level structures in terms of access path and machine level structures using a “structured programming” approach.



Generalized data structures in Madcap VI

The Madcap VI generalized data structures are compared to data structure concepts in PL/1 and their implementation using "codewords" is discussed.

Storage organization in programming systems

The system of program and data representation that has been in use on the Rice University computer for five years is described and the application of labeled blocks may be extended to areas of time-sharing and multi-media storage control.
