A practical solution for achieving language compatibility in scripting language compilers

Paul Biggar, Edsko de Vries, David Gregg
2012 Science of Computer Programming  
These features make it difficult to design a fully compatible compiler. We present a technique to support these features in an ahead-of-time compiler for PHP.  ...  Our technique uses the original PHP implementation through the provided C API, both in our compiler and in our generated code. We support all of these important scripting language features.  ...  The authors are grateful for funding from the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (IRCSET) Embark Initiative, which made this work possible.  ...

A practical solution for scripting language compilers

Paul Biggar, Edsko de Vries, David Gregg
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 ACM symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '09  
These features make the important goal of correctness difficult to achieve. We present a technique to support these features in an ahead-oftime compiler for PHP.  ...  Although scripting languages are becoming increasingly popular, even mature scripting language implementations remain interpreted.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors are indebted to Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology funded by the National Development Plan, whose funding made this work possible.  ...

Numerical Modelling of Concrete Tensile Strength Test by Wrapping Scripting Language with Compiled Library

Md. GolamRashed, Raquib Ahsan, Sharmin Reza Chowdhury
2012 International Journal of Computer Applications  
verification as a viable finite element solution with an example of concrete tensile strength test simulation.  ...  The finite element analysis method is one of the widely used approaches for this purpose.  ...  However, one should realize that, there is a concern for speed if the whole program is coded in a scripting language alone.  ...

Telescoping Languages: A System for Automatic Generation of Domain Languages

K. Kennedy, B. Broom, A. Chauhan, R.J. Fowler, J. Garvin, C. Koelbel, C. McCosh, J. Mellor-Crummey
2005 Proceedings of the IEEE  
It is not enough, however, to simply develop excellent compiler technologies for scripting languages (as a number of projects have succeeded in doing for MATLAB).  ...  If applications written in scripting languages could be routinely compiled into highly optimized machine code, a huge productivity advantage would be possible.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thank the referees for their numerous constructive suggestions, which substantially increased the quality of this paper.  ...

Paper presents a detailed possibilities of support from DB2 for PL/SQL language and shows how to configure DB2 to work with the language PL/SQL. Streszczenie.  ...  This version implements new elements of support (compatibility) for Oracle in comparison to the previous versions.  ...  This registry variable is used to enable one or more DB2 compatibility features. Full compatibility level is achieved by assigning a registry variable DB2_COMPATIBILITY_VECTOR for value ORA.  ...

In Praise of Scripting: Real Programming Pragmatism

Ronald P. Loui
2008 Computer  
Is there room for scripting in enterprise or real-time applications? Is there a way for scripting practices to scale to larger software engineering projects?  ...  But an emerging consensus in the scripting community holds that Python is the right solution for freshman programming. Ruby would also be a defensible choice.  ...  Loui received a PhD in computer science from the University of Rochester. Contact him at  ...

Critters in the classroom

Eike Falk Anderson, Leigh McLoughlin
2007 ACM SIGGRAPH 2007 educators program on - SIGGRAPH '07  
The brewing crisis threatening computer science education is a well documented fact. To counter this and to increase enrolment and retention in computer science related degrees, it has been suggested  ...  Finally, a word of thanks must go to our students for giving us useful feedback.  ...  We also have to mention our collaborator on this project, Steffen Engel, as well as our other colleagues for their comments and suggestions that have contributed to this project.  ...

MatlabCompat.jl: helping Julia understand Your Matlab/Octave Code [article]

Vardan Andriasyan, Yauhen Yakimovich, Artur Yakimovich
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Performance of non-vectorized code written in MATLAB/Octave represents a major burden. A new programming language for technical computing Julia, promises to address these issues.  ...  Scientific legacy code in MATLAB/Octave not compatible with modernization of research workflows is vastly abundant throughout academic community.  ...  Ivo Sbalzarini for scientific discussions and motivation for completing the work. Additionally we would like to thank Julia community for help, recognition and the warm welcome.  ...

jsr223: A Java Platform Integration for R with Programming Languages Groovy, JavaScript, JRuby, Jython, and Kotlin

Floid,R. Gilbert, David,B. Dahl
2019 The R Journal  
-223: Scripting for the Java Platform" that defines a framework to embed scripts in Java applications.  ...  The R package jsr223 is a high-level integration for five programming languages in the Java platform: Groovy, JavaScript, JRuby, Jython, and Kotlin.  ...  In addition, rJython does not supply interfaces for callbacks, script compiling, or capturing console output. In essence, rJython implements a basic interface to the Jython language.  ...

Manuele Simi, Fabien Campagne
2014 PeerJ  
In order to evaluate the potential of language workbenches in bioinformatics, we tested a prominent workbench by developing an alternative to shell scripting.  ...  In contrast to shell scripts, NYoSh scripts can be written in a modern development environment, supporting context dependent intentions and can be extended seamlessly by end--users with new abstractions  ...  For instance, shell interpreters: • Are not compilers -scripting languages are interpreted.  ...
