The Standard ML Basis Library

by

The Standard ML Basis Library Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume describes the Standard ML (SML) Basis Library, the standard library for the SML Language. For programmers using SML, it provides a complete description of the library's modules, types and functions, which is supported by all conforming implementations of the language. The book serves as a programmer's reference, offering manual pages with concise descriptions. In addition, the chapters present the principles and rationales used in designing the library, and relates these to idioms and examples for using it. A particular emphasis of the library is to encourage the use of SML in serious system programming. Major features include I/O, a large collection of primitive types, support for internationalization, and a portable operating system interface.

Book News Annotation:

Written as a reference for programmers who use SML, this text provides descriptions of the types, values, and modules that make up the Library and a set of manual pages defining its signatures and structures. In addition, some chapters are devoted to descriptions of some component areas, including I/O and text handling, in some cases with short tutorial sections indicating how the types and functions are used. The manual pages describe the signatures, structures, and functors specified by the Library, and their semantics. The modules are presented alphabetically. A bibliography and general index, SML identifier index, and raised exception index are included. Gansner is with AT&T Laboratories; Reppy is at the U. of Chicago.

Synopsis:

Provides a complete description of the modules, types and functions composing the Standard ML Basis Library.

Synopsis:

SML is an influential programming language that represents many state-of-the-art aspects of language design in a form usable for everyday programming. The language is in use worldwide, with applications ranging from network communication to theorem proving. The definition for SML's standard library, this work concisely describes the types and functions defined in the library and discusses in depth the library's design and use. This manual will be an indispensable reference for students, professional programmers, and language designers.
