Then, describe with details the mechanism of calling subroutines (including descriptions
of the prologue and epilogue and all stack manipulations).

Overview of Programming Languages
Corey: So i guess Kevin never got around to grading this one.
Extend the following sample grammar shown in the class:

Describe the role of semantic analysis in program compilation.
What does a semantic analyzer do?
The principal job of the semantic analysis is to enforce static

1. A binding can be defined as a relationship between two items. For example, a name that is assigned a value could be labeled as a binding.
A binding scope is the section of code in which the binding is active.
The lifetime binding is the amount of time
1. The role of semantic analysis in program compilation is to enforce static semantic rules.A semantic analyzer helps construct abstract syntax trees, gather information necessary for the code generator, perform dynamic checks and verify assertions.
What is a programming language? What rules it encompasses? What it allows us to do?
A programming language is a standardized communication technique for describing instructions for a computer. Syntactic and sematic rules encompasses i
Define the following terms and give examples of languages in each category:
strongly-typed language - prevents invalid operations on a t
Explain the role of side effects in imperative languages.
Imperative languages have a side effect if it influences subsequent
computation in any way other than by returning a value. A side effect occurs

Instructor: Prof. AJ Bieszczad
Why Learn C (after Java)?
Both high-level and low-level language
Better control of hardware
Performance better than Java (non-interpreted)
Java hides many details needed for writin
