Semantics and pragmatics of programming language ASAMPL

Y.S. Sulema, V.V. Glinskii


This paper presents semantics and practical implementation of the domain-specific programming language ASAMPL. This programming language has been developed to support the efficient processing of multimodal data processing, in particular, the processing of multimedia content which components are evidently defined in terms of time. The data processing concept employed in ASAMPL is based on the data structures, operations, and relations defined in the algebraic system of aggregates. The paper explains the compilation approach used for this programming language as well as it presents the test results and their discussion.
