Abstract

In this paper, we address our design rationale and present the design of a symbol table library. A symbol processing task can be divided into two parts: one for storing/retrieving symbols, and the other for semantics checking. The former is language-independent and can be defined as reusable components. The latter is language-dependent and can be defined as parametric types to symbol table components or as specific semantics rules. We identify general properties of name analysis problems: topology, overload, navigation, etc. The resulting design of the library covers most usages in symbol processing.
