The 'Honeysuckle' Programming Language: Event and Process
Authors: East, Ian R.
A new language for programming systems with Communicating Process Architecture is introduced which builds upon the success of occam. Some of the principal objectives are presented and justified. The means employed to express behaviour are then described, including a transfer primitive, which conveys object ownership as well as value, and an alternation construct. The latter replaces PRI PAR and PRI ALT, and affords explicit expression of conflict-free prioritized reactive (event-driven) behaviour, including exception response. HPL also offers source-code modularity, object encapsulation, and the recursive definition of both object and process. Despite such ambition, a primary aim has been to retain simplicity in abstraction, expression, and implementation.
