Catalog of Free Compilers and Interpreters.


With this document, I attempt to track the freely available compilers
and interpreters. THIS IS STILL A DRAFT DOCUMENT: it has errors, it
is not complete, and I might re-organize it.

There is some overlap of coverage between this document and
Bill Kinnersley's Language List. His document covers all computer
languages and as a by-product includes some information about
implementations. I wish to cover all free implementations and as
a by-product cover some languages. Both from laziness and to avoid
duplication of effort, I have not integrated the information from
Bill Kinnersley's Language List into my catalog.

There is also some overlap between my catalog and Colas Nahaboo's
Catalog of embeddable Languages.

It is my intention that my catalog primerily serve developers rather
than researchers. I am much more intersted in production quality
systems.

To be on this list a package must have source code included. If there
are any packages on this list that do not have source code included,
then I would appreciate it if it is brought to my attention so that
I may correct the error.

There are many fields filled in with a question mark (?). If you have
information which would allow me to remove question marks, please
send it to me.The only field which I do not expect to be completely
obvious is the "parts" field because I wish to distinguish between
compilers, translators, and interpretors. To qualify as a compiler
as I'm using the term, it must compile translate to a machine-readable
format no higher-level than assembly. Why? Just because. If you've
got a better idea, send it in.

I hope to post this once a month. I don't know if I will be able to.

David Muir Sharnoff , 10/2/92

This documents attempts to catalog freely availiable compilers,
interpretors, libraries, and language tools. It is my intention
that it be aimed at developers rather than researchers.

Please note that I am supporting the FSF boycott of Apple by not including
Macintosh-only entries. If you want to find Macintosh ports, ftp to
bric-a-brac.apple.com, sumex-aim.stanford.edu, pacific.mps.ohio-state.edu,
plains.nodak.edu, plains.nodak.edu, wuarchive.wustl.edu, archive.umich.edu,
jyu.fi, neptune.ethz.ch, archive.umich.edu, cs.dal.ca, and ftp.uu.net.
Or send mail to Zbigniew Fiedorowicz
for his list.

how to get:ftp pub/hermes/README from software.watson.ibm.com
description:Hermes is a very-high-level integrated language and
system for implementation of large systems and
distributed applications, as well as for
general-purpose programming. It is an imperative,
strongly typed, process-oriented language. Hermes
hides distribution and heterogeneity from the
programmer. The programmer sees a single abstract
machine containing processes that communicate using
calls or sends. The compiler, not the programmer,
deals with the complexity of data structure layout,
local and remote communication, and interaction with
the operating system. As a result, Hermes programs are
portable and easy to write. Because the programming
paradigm is simple and high level, there are many
opportunities for optimization which are not present in
languages which give the programmer more direct control
over the machine.

description:The goal of Modula-3 is to be as simple and safe as it
can be while meeting the needs of modern systems
programmers. Instead of exploring new features, we
studied the features of the Modula family of languages
that have proven themselves in practice and tried to
simplify them into a harmonious language. We found
that most of the successful features were aimed at one
of two main goals: greater robustness, and a simpler,
more systematic type system. Modula-3 retains one of
Modula-2's most successful features, the provision for
explicit interfaces between modules. It adds objects
and classes, exception handling, garbage collection,
lightweight processes (or threads), and the isolation
of unsafe features.

description:A better characterization is that S/SL is a language
explicitly designed for making efficient recusive-descent
parsers. Unlike most other languages, practicially the
LEAST expensive thing you can do in S/SL is recur. A
small language that defines input/output/error token
names (& values), semantic operations (which are really
escapes to a programming language but allow good
abstration in the pseudo-code), and a pseudo-code
program that defines a grammar by the token stream the
program accepts. Alternation, control flow, and
1-symbol lookahead constructs are part of the
language. What I call an S/SL "implementation", is a
program that compiles this S/SL pseudo-code into a
table (think byte-codes) that is interpreted by the
S/SL table-walker (interpreter). I think the pseudo-code
language is LR(1), and that the semantic mechanisms turn it
into LR(N) relatively easily.

It has clean and simple syntax, parameterized classes,
object-oriented dispatch, multiple inheritance, strong
typing, and garbage collection. The compiler generates
efficient and portable C code which is easily
integrated with existing code.
package:A variety of development tools including a debugger and browser
based on gdb and a GNU Emacs development environment
have also been developed. There is also a class library
with several hundred classes that implement a variety
of basic data structures and numerical, geometric,
connectionist, statistical, and graphical abstractions.
We would like to encourage contributions to the library
and hope to build a large collection of efficient,
well-written, well-tested classes in a variety of areas
of computer science.

author:R. Kent Dybvig
description:We have designed and implemented a macro system that is
vastly superior to the low-level system described in
the Revised^4 Report; in fact, it essentially
eliminates the low level altogether. We also believe
it to be superior to the other proposed low-level
systems as well, but each of you can judge that for
yourself. We have accomplished this by "lowering the
level" of the high-level system slightly, making
pattern variables ordinary identifiers with essentially
the same status as lexical variable names and macro
keywords, and by making "syntax" recognize and handle
references to pattern variables.

how to get:ftp ? from self.stanford.edu
The Self Group at Sun Microsystems Laboratories,
Inc., and Stanford University is pleased to announce
Release 2.0 of the experimental object-oriented
exploratory programming language Self.
Release 2.0 introduces full source-level debugging
of optimized code, adaptive optimization to shorten
compile pauses, lightweight threads within Self,
support for dynamically linking foreign functions,
changing programs within Self, and the ability to
run the experimental Self graphical browser under
OpenWindows.
Designed for expressive power and malleability,
Self combines a pure, prototype-based object model
with uniform access to state and behavior. Unlike
other languages, Self allows objects to inherit
state and to change their patterns of inheritance
dynamically. Self's customizing compiler can generate
very efficient code compared to other dynamically-typed
object-oriented languages.

description:SR is a language for writing concurrent programs.
Themain language constructs are resources and
operations. Resources encapsulate processes and
variables they share; operations provide the primary
mechanism for process interaction. SR provides a novel
integration of the mechanisms for invoking and
servicing operations. Consequently, all of local and
remote procedure call, rendezvous, message passing,
dynamic process creation, multicast, and semaphores are
supported.

objects using BOS to extend, among other things,
the set of tk widgets (I have all tk widgets wrapped
with BOS "classes"). BOS is a class-free object
system, also called a prototype-based object system;
it is modeled loosely on the Self system from
Stanford.
