Languages as First-Class Citizens (Vision Paper)
Vision / New Idea
In this paper, we present the design and implementation of LO-FL, a statically typed, language-oriented, functional programming languages. In LO-FL, languages are first-class citizens, that is, they are values like integers and functions. We present the syntax and the semantics for a core fragment of LO-FL. We also high-light with examples three idioms that LO-FL enables: language transformations, strategy passing, and language switch.
