Programming and Compilers Archives

January 1, 0001

MuleWin32.jpg This category and this category in the Japanese version of my blog contains topics on small-scale to large-scale programming, programming languages, and compilers. The upper category is Information, Computation and Programming.

ProLingCover.jpg BTW, as shown on the top of the category page, the submission date of this page is intentionally set 0001-01-01 00:00:00. However, the actual submission date is 2009-01-18 13:34:29.

To keep the page light, I exclude photos in individual pages from the archive page. Instead, I inserted some of them here.

In 1981, I chose “linguistics of programming languages” or “programming linuistics” for the theme of my graduate thesis. This was a trial to analyze programming languages by using the methodology of linguistics (of natural languages). I wrote a brief introduction to this work on a Web page in English. A scientist looked at this page and wanted to introduce this work in a tutorial in a workshop. So I wrote another Web page that contain an English abstract and contents. Because I wanted to introduce this paper since I started this blog, I try to write on this topic here. [The Japanese version of this page was written in September 2007, but I translated it to English in June 2008.]

I wrote that I received an inquiry from a French on “Programming Linguistics” that I proposed in my graduate thesis in a blog article titled “Linguistics of programming languages ― now an inquiry on my graduate thesis came from France”. Yesteday I received another inquiry from a Japanese, and I searched for related work. As I wrote in the above article, there have been a few studies on programs regarded as human-written linguistic expressions. However, in this time, I found a paper by Masaru Ohba and Katsuhiko Gondow, which analyzes the strudture of identifiers.
