Control structures for programming languages by David A Fisher( Book )

5 editions published between 1970 and 1987 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation attempts to demonstrate that complexity diminishes and clarity increases to a marked degree if algorithms are described in a language in which appropriate control structures are primitive or easily expressible. The thesis catalogs a number of control structures and uses them to develop an extensible language. The features of the language (primitive control operations for sequential processing, parallel processing, alternative selection, monitoring, synchronization, and relative continuity) are the source of the clarity of control descriptions: they span our conceptual notion of control, and they can be easily decomposed to form other more specialized control structures.

Design Issues for Ada Program Support Environments: A Catalogue of Issues by David A Fisher( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper catalogues many of the design decisions necessary to the design of an Ada program support environment (APSE). The emphasis is on those design decisions which affect the APSE users and tool builders. It is hoped that early identification and resolution of these design decisions will maximize the simplicity, usefulness, and ease of use for any APSE while permitting tool building efforts to begin in parallel with implementation of the kernel APSE. The catalogue includes both design decisions and conventions on the form, function and performance of the various internal and external interfaces, but does not address other design decisions critical to the implementation and internal representations of the kernel APSE.
