Icon: An Interpreter-Based Approach
This paper introduces the Icon programming language in a simplified
form using a lisp-like syntax to represent an interesting subset of
the language. The paper also discusses the semantics and
implementation of some of Icon's advanced features with emphasis on
generators and goal-directed evaluation.
The organization of the paper resembles a chapter in the book
``Programming Languages: An Interpreter-Based Approach'' by Samuel
Kamin. This paper can serve as a supplement to that book, allowing
comparative programming language instructors who use the Kamin text to
efficiently teach the Icon programming language.
