All the C++ literals are built-in to Larch/C++. A literal can be viewed as
a trait function (with zero arity) of the sort which the literal's type is
based on. For example, one can view the integer constant
as a trait function with the signature
27: -> int.
As in C++, adjacent string-literals are concatenated into a single
string (see section 2.5.4 of [Ellis-Stroustrup90]).
literal ::= integer-constant | floating-constant | character-constant | string-literal [ string-literal ] ... | abstract-string-literal
