Learn to build configuration file readers, data readers, model-driven code generators, source-to-source translators, source analyzers, and interpreters. You don't need a background in computer science--ANTLR creator Terence Parr demystifies language implementation by breaking it down into the most common design patterns. Pattern by pattern, you'll learn the key skills you need to implement your own computer languages.
This book is aimed at a reader who has studied an introductory book on mathemat-
ical ﬁnance and an introductory book on C++ but does not know how to put the
two together. My objective is to teach the reader not just how to implement models
in C++ but more importantly how to think in an object-oriented way. There are
already many books on object-oriented programming; however, the examples tend
not to feel real to the ﬁnancial mathematician so in this book we work exclusively
with examples from derivatives pricing....
Abstract This document provides an in-depth tour of support in the Microsoft® .NET Framework 4 for parallel programming. This includes an examination of common parallel patterns and how they’re implemented without and with this new support, as well as best practices for developing parallel components utilizing parallel patterns.
This book isn't an introduction to object-oriented technology or design. Many
books already do a good job of that. This book assumes you are reasonably proficient
in at least one object-oriented programming language, and you should have some
experience in object-oriented design as well. You definitely shouldn't have to
rush to the nearest dictionary the moment we mention "types" and "polymorphism,"
or "interface" as opposed to "implementation” inheritance.
In a well-structured Lexica] Data B a s e , a number of relations among lexica] entries can he interactively evidenced. The present article examines hyponymy, as an example of paradigmatic relation, and "restriction" relation, as a syntagmatic relation. The theoretical results of their implementation are illustrated.
Programming technologies have improved continuously during the last decades
but, from an Information Systems perspective, some well-known problems associatedwith
the design and implementation of an Information Systems persist:Object-
Oriented Methods, Formal Specification Languages, Component-Based Software
Production,Aspect-OrientedApproaches.This is only a very short list of technologies
proposed to solve a very old and, at the same time, very well-known problem:
how to produce software of quality.
We report work1 in progress on adding affect-detection to an existing program for virtual dramatic improvisation, monitored by a human director. To partially automate the directors’ functions, we have partially implemented the detection of emotions, etc. in users’ text input, by means of pattern-matching, robust parsing and some semantic analysis. The work also involves basic research into how affect is conveyed by metaphor.
When people use natural language in natural settings, they often use it ungrammatically, rnisSing out or repeating words, breaking-oil and restarting, speaking in Iragments, etc.. Their human listeners are usually able to cope with these deviations with little difficulty. If a computer system wislles tc accept natural language input from its users on a routine basis, it must display a similar indifference. In this paper, we outline a set of parsing flexibiiilies that :',uch a system should provide. We go, on to describe FlexP.
A computer program for synthesizing Japanese fundamental frequency contours implements our theory of Japanese intonation. This theory provides a complete qualitative description of the known characteristics of Japanese intonation, as well as a quantitative model of tone-scaling and timing precise enough to translate straightforwardly into a computational algorithm. An important aspect of the description is that various features of the intonation pattern are designated to be phonological properties of different types of phrasal units in a hierarchical organization.
The theme of this module is the progression from programming at the level of
small details to programming at a higher level. This includes the features of the
language that are designed to support scalability and the features that operate on
a higher level than that of the individual class.
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Define internal classes, methods, and data that allow unrelated classes to
have privileged access to each other.
Use aggregation to implement powerful patterns, such as factories.
Use namespaces to organize classes.
Intuitively, a simple event notiﬁcation service that provides no selection
mechanism can be reduced to a multicast routing and transport mechanism
for which there are numerous scalable implementations. However, once the
service provides a selection mechanism, then the overall efﬁciency of the ser-
vice and its routing of notiﬁcations are affected by the power of the language
used to construct notiﬁcations and to express ﬁlters and patterns. As the power
of the language increases, so does the complexity of the processing.
Overgeneration is the main source of computational complexity in previous principle-based parsers. This paper presents a message passing algorithm for principle-based parsing that avoids the overgeneration problem. This algorithm has been implemented in C + + and successfully tested with example sentences from (van Riemsdijk and Williams, 1986). 1.
