Design and Implementation of Programming Languages
|Meeting Time:||C: MWF 10:00-10:50|
|Offered this year?||Yes|
|When Offered?||Most years|
This course explores the principles of modern programming languages by implementing them. Examines linguistic features, especially control operators such as first-class functions, exceptions and continuations. This leads to a study of data and their types, including polymorphism, type inference and type soundness. The course concludes by examining compiler and run-time system topics such as continuation-passing style and garbage collection. Prerequisite: CSCI0160, CSCI0180 or CSCI0190.
