|(language)||Application Executive - (AE) An embeddable language, written as a C
interpreter by Brian Bliss at UIUC. AE is compiled with an
application and thus exists in the same process and address
space. It includes a dbx symbol table scanner to access
compiled variables and routines, or you can enter them
manually by providing a type/name declaration and the address.
When the interpreter is invoked, source code fragments are
read from the input stream (or a string), parsed, and
evaluated immediately. The user can call compiled functions
in addition to a few built-in intrinsics, declare new data
types and data objects, etc. Different input streams can be
evaluated in parallel on Alliant computers.|
AE has been ported to SunOS (cc or gcc), Alliant FX and Cray YMP (soon).
