Martin, Johannes J.
MetadataShow full item record
The paper outlines the programming language FAD. FAD is a functional programming system of the kind described by Backus [Backus78]. FAD supports abstract data types, parameterized types, and generic functions. A single scope rule establishes the encapsulation requirements for data type specification and program structuring. Certain syntactic additions improve program readability as compared to pure functional notation.
