Architecture of a Hardware Data Interpreter
February 1979 (vol. 28 no. 2)
pp. 101-109
null Yaohan Chu, Department of Computer Science, University of Maryland
Data interpretation refers to the execution of the data declarations of a high-level language program which declare the data variables, the data types, and the data structures in the high-level language program. This paper introduces the direct-execution computer architecture and presents the architecture of a hardware data interpreter. The data interpreter scans the data declaration, and stores the type, structural, and referencing information about the data in an associative memory. It then interprets the data when the data name is referred to. It also performs the data operations of the data types of the high-level programming language.
Index Terms:
