Techniques in Programming Languages elucidates the relevant suggestions utilized in glossy programming languages, resembling capabilities, varieties, reminiscence administration, and regulate. The e-book is exclusive in its complete presentation and comparability of significant object-oriented programming languages. Separate chapters research the background of gadgets, Simula and Smalltalk, and the well-liked languages C++ and Java. the writer provides foundational themes, comparable to lambda calculus and denotational semantics, in an easy-to-read, casual sort, targeting the most insights supplied through those theories. complex issues comprise concurrency, concurrent object-oriented programming, application parts, and inter-language interoperability. A bankruptcy on good judgment programming illustrates the significance of specialised programming tools for definite types of difficulties.

Example text

Your answer should be in the following form: When a function exits, free all memory allocated by the function except…. Justify your answer. (Hint: Your statement should not be more than a sentence or two. ) c. Now assume that you have an correctly functioning region-based garbage collector. Does your region-based collector have any advantages or disadvantage sover a simple mark-and-sweep collector? d. Could a region-based collector like the one described in this problem work for impure Lisp? If you think the problem is more complicated for impure Lisp, briefly explain why.

Using define to define a recursive function, we can write the maplist as follows: (define maplist (lambda (f x) (cond ((eq x nil) nil) (true (cons (f (car x)) (maplist f (cdr x))))))) We cannot say whether the maplist is a second-order or third-order function, as the elements of the list might be atoms, functions, or higher-order functions. " Higher-order functions require more run-time support than first-order functions, as discussed in some detail in Chapter 7. 8 Garbage Collection In computing, garbage refers to memory locations that are not accessible to a program.

There are garbage collectors that collect everything that is garbage according to McCarthy's definition. Would it be possible to write a garbage collector to collect everything that is garbage according to our definition? Explain why or why not. 6 Reference Counting This question is about a possible implementation of garbage collection for Lisp. Both impure and pure Lisp have lambda abstraction, function application, and elementary functions atom, eq, car, cdr, and cons. Impure Lisp also has rplaca, rplacd, and other functions that have side effects on memory cells.
