Abstract

A declaration mechanism is proposed that allows common type information to be factored into a type expression, yet allows related but distinct types to be declared together. The mechanism is a unification of declarations in Pascal and C. The choice of syntax is quite important. The proposed syntax uses a postfix operator for dereferencing pointers instead of the prefix operator * for pointer dereferencing in C. 8 refs.
