Blending Imperative and Relational Programming
January/February 1991 (vol. 8 no. 1)
pp. 58-65

When imperative (value- or state-oriented) programming and logical (relation-oriented) programming are combined into a single language, the combination is even more powerful than when either technique is used alone. Leda, a strongly typed compiled language that tries to combine features of both, is described. Suggestions for blending the two styles are offered. Logical features of Leda are examined.

Index Terms:
imperative programming; logical programming; strongly typed language; relational programming; Leda; compiled language; high level languages; logic programming; programming
