An implementation of the C++ container library with SCOOL
- Warren Seine
- C++ SCOOL STL
SCOOL is a domain-specific language (DSL) designed to make high-level C++ development easier. Based on SCOOP, a paradigm mixing generic and object-oriented programming, it features static resolution of member function calls and powerful concept checking. Previously, a standard container library had been made in pure C++ using SCOOP. Howeverthis implementation required high control of the C++ techniques of SCOOP. With SCOOL, we can achieve this by leaving the hard work to the C++ translator. Focusing on the development of the library with SCOOL and the essential changes to the language and its compiler, we will compare the native and DSL solutions and assess that SCOOL is well-fitted for generic application prototyping.
