Introduction to the Galaxy Language
May/June 1989 (vol. 6 no. 3)
pp. 55-62

Galaxy provides a basis for an all-level language for special-purpose applications through notational, syntactic, and semantic extensions. A primary goal was to narrow the gap between a problem's domain and its specification language. The concepts on which Galaxy is based are discussed, and its constructs are examined. The nontraditional compiler-implementation techniques necessitated by the separation of syntax and semantics in Galaxy are considered.

Index Terms:
Galaxy language; all-level language; special-purpose applications; syntactic; semantic; specification language; compiler-implementation techniques; specification languages
