Egle, David M. (1995) Evaluating Larch/C++ as a Specification Language = A Case Study Using the Microsoft Foundation Class Library. Technical Report TR95-17, Department of Computer Science, Iowa State University.
This paper attempts to evaluate Larch/C++, a formal specification
language, as a means of more unambiguously documenting the interface
specifications of C++ class libraries. In particular, the Microsoft
Foundation Class Library is examined to demonstrate some of the advantages
and disadvantages of using Larch/C++. Several different examples are
presented with analysis. The reader is assumed to have some familiarity with
C++ and the idea of formal specification, but need not know the Larch
approach to formal specification.
