Interpreters from functions and grammars

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The addition of context free grammar rules to a functional language simplifies the construction of interpreters from denotational semantic language definitions. Functional abstraction over grammar rules enables the specification and processing of context sensitive language syntax aspects in a functional style. © 1986.
