<language> (AE) An embeddable language, written as a C interpreter by
Brian Bliss at UIUC. AE is compiled with an application and thus exists in the
same process and address space. It includes a dbx symbol table scanner to access
compiled variables and routines, or you can enter them manually by providing a
type/name declaration and the address. When the interpreter is invoked, source
code fragments are read from the input stream (or a string), parsed, and
evaluated immediately. The user can call compiled functions in addition to a few
built-in intrinsics, declare new data types and data objects, etc. Different
input streams can be evaluated in parallel on Alliant computers.
AE has been ported to SunOS (cc or gcc), Alliant FX and Cray YMP (soon).
