By Gilles Dowek, Jean-Jacques Lévy

The layout and implementation of programming languages, from Fortran and Cobol to Caml and Java, has been one of many key advancements within the administration of ever extra complicated automatic platforms. creation to the idea of Programming Languages provides the reader the capacity to find the instruments to imagine, layout, and enforce those languages. It proposes a unified imaginative and prescient of the various formalisms that allow definition of a programming language: small steps operational semantics, colossal steps operational semantics, and denotational semantics, emphasising that every one search to outline a relation among 3 items: a software, an enter price, and an output price. those formalisms are illustrated by means of proposing the semantics of a few standard positive aspects of programming languages: features, recursivity, assignments, files, gadgets, ... exhibiting that the learn of programming languages doesn't include learning languages one after one other, yet is geared up round the positive factors which are found in those a number of languages. The research of those positive factors ends up in the improvement of evaluators, interpreters and compilers, and likewise variety inference algorithms, for small languages.

Example text

Its append method is called to add one part to the other. Then you get the final string when its toString method is called. All these are done automatically. Doing this inside a loop will imply creating a large number of objects. If you write the code yourself for doing this instead of directly using string concatenation, you can significantly improve the performance of this operation. Give the garbage collector light work You cannot depend as safely and surely on the CLDC garbage collector as in J2SE.

In other words, your runtime memory budget is even more limited. Figure 2-5: Data storage structure. ♦ Make your applications small: Besides conserving runtime memory, you have to keep the size of your application in accordance with the storage available. To achieve this, you can package your application in the form of a JAR archive. Other tools that remove unnecessary information from a file may also be used to cut down the size of the application. ♦ Use of scalar types: Whenever you declare an object, it is allocated space on the runtime heap.

This is why there is only one class Connector but there are eight interfaces in this package. io package, refer to Figure 3-3. All these are listed below: ♦ Interface Connection ♦ Interface ContentConnection ♦ Interface Datagram ♦ Interface DatagramConnection ♦ Interface InputConnection ♦ Interface OutputConnection ♦ Interface StreamConnection 32 Chapter 3: CLDC API and Reference Implementation ♦ Interface StreamConnectionNotifier ♦ Class Connector Figure 3-3: CLDC Interface Hierarchy. Class connector is the only class in the package and is used to open a connection with the open method.
