COM 320 - Programming Languages


This course presents an overview of the syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of several higher level languages and the distinction between static and dynamic typing. Examples will be drawn from various classes of languages including procedural, declarative, functional, concurrent, visual, and object-oriented. The major applications (eg. artificial intelligence, data processing, scientific/engineering, etc.) will be explored for each type of language. Formal languages and automata, including theories of parsing and language translation will be considered.
