Meeting of 10/28/08

Implement Snoopy semaphore Adrian's idea: Allow specialized channels to be created under Buffer(), such as 1-sender 1-receiver, multiple senders 1-receiver, etc. This will allow us to implement operations such as closenb efficiently.

How to code Readers-writers?

Write a Gui as an event-based program.

if-then-else is to remain. Clarify its precedence wrt other operators.

Put a subsection on operator precedence as part of complete syntax.

Define getAll() in the User Guide.

Add a lot of standard Idioms:

  • Guarded commands
  • Stateful computations
  • use of semaphores
  • Using channels to communicate between f and g in f | g and f << g
  • implement a while loop
  • detect convergence of monotonic computation using a separate thread
  • Services that return streams; how to write stream-based computations

Include afold in the Library

Wait on: Further optimizations implementing types

Read up Meijer's work

Extensive documentaton of code and features

Some Points from Prior meetings

Colophon will be too exhaustive to maintain. Adrian's idea: add a news section to the web site, and post significant changes.

GradFest demo
