<p>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.</p>
