Part-compilation in high-level languages
- 18 Downloads
Many programming languages include the ability to divide large programs into smaller segments, which are compiled separately. When a small modification is made to a large program, then the affected segment only has to be re-compiled.
This paper discusses how high-level languages like Algol 68, Algol W or Simula 67 can incorporate part-compilation in a usable, secure and efficient way.
