On Thursday, February 2, John Stone will discuss the development of software in modern Scheme:
The Revised6 report on the algorithmic language Scheme introduces several new constructions into the language that enable programmers to impose a modular structure on their code, simplifying large-scale program development and promoting even greater flexibility in adapting the language to particular applications. This talk illustrates some of the possibilities, drawing on two examples: (0) a reimplementation in R6RS of the Smark programmable filter, and (1) an extensive algorithm library, created for the textbook Algorithms for functional programming.
Refreshments will be served at 4:15 p.m. in the Computer Science Commons (Noyce 3817). The talk, "Software development using R6RS libraries," will follow at 4:30 p.m. in Noyce 3821. Everyone is welcome to attend!
