Title CONSIM: a converstional simulation language implemented through interpretive control self-modeling
Date 1977
Description This paper describes an implementation technique termed interpretive control self-modeling (ICSM) and outlines its application in the implementation of CONSIM, a prototype conversational simulation language. ICSM may be defined as the use of a higher-level programming language (HLL) to specify its own control organization through an interpreter administering each control event in a 'reflexive" fashion. That is, recursion in the subject program is implemented via recursion in the interpreter, coroutines via coroutines, etc. Thus the run-time control state of the interpreter evolves in a manner directly paralleling that evolving in the subject program.
