Review: Language ONE Let’s develop an operational semantics for a simple programming language called ONE ; ONE : < exp >* ::= < exp > + < mulexp > | < mulexp > < mulexp > ::= < mulexp > * < rootexp > | < rootexp > < rootexp > ::= ( < exp > ) | < constant > < constant > ::= all valid integer constants Note: The grammar is unambiguous, both precedence and associativity rules of “standard” arithmetic are observed. Do the following sentences belong to L ( ONE )? Why? Why not? s = 1 + 2 * 3 s = (1 + 2) * 3 s = a + 3

Review: Prolog Interpreter for ONE val1(plus(X,Y),Value) :- val1(X,XValue), val1(Y,YValue), Value is XValue + YValue. val1(times(X,Y),Value) :- val1(X,XValue), val1(Y,YValue), Value is XValue * YValue. val1(const(X),X). A simple interpreter that computes a semantic value for syntactic constructs, the computation of this semantic value can be interpreted as the behavior: val1 / 2, AST input and semantic value as output.

Problems What is the value of a constant? Interpreter says val1(const(X),X). This means that the value of a constant in Language One is whatever the value of that same constant is in Prolog Unfortunately, different implementations of Prolog handle this differently

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
