CSC352Theory of Programming Languages
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: CSC211 Or INF211 And (INF215 Or CSC215 Or INF229 Or CSC229 Or CSC312 Or INF312)
A programming language is a programmer’s principal interface with the computer. More than just knowing how to program in a single language, programmers need to understand the different styles of programming promoted by different languages. In their professional life, they will be working with many different languages and styles, and will encounter many different languages over the course of their careers. Understanding the variety of programming languages and the design tradeoffs between the different programming paradigms makes it much easier to master new languages quickly. Understanding the pragmatic aspects of programming languages also requires a basic knowledge of programming language translation and runtime features such as storage allocation. In this course we explore the major issues in both design and implementation of modern programming languages and provide a basic introduction to the underlying theoretical models on which these languages are based. The emphasis is on fundamental concepts. Several languages are highlighted in sufficient detail to enable the students to write programs that illustrate the relationship between a source program and its execution behavior.
