Programming Language Design
(x-listed COSC 5423.03)
Section M Winter Tue, Thu 10:00-11:30
This course is a continuation of COSC3301.03
Programming Language Fundamentals. Like its
predecessor, the course focuses on the linguistics of
programming languages; that is, on the common,
unifying themes that are relevant to programming
languages in general. Both algorithmic and
nonalgorithmic language categories are examined.
Current techniques for the formal specification of the
syntax and semantics of programming languages are
studied. Skills are developed in the critical and
comparative evaluation of programming languages.
