The Essence of Multiparadigm Programming
Six blind sages were shown an elephant, and met to discuss their
experience. ``It's wonderful,'' said the first, ``an elephant is like a
snake: slender and flexible.'' ``No, no, not at all,'' said the second,
``an elephant is like a tree: sturdily planted on the ground.''
``Marvelous,'' said the third, ``an elephant is like a wall.''
``Incredible,'' said the fourth, ``an elephant is a tube filled with
water.'' ``What is then this mythical beast that is all things to all?,''
said the fifth. ``Hell if I know,'' said the sixth, ``but let us now
disperse and proclaim our wisdom.''

The Half_Life Compiler
(460K) compiler. This is a partial implementation of a LIFE compiler
that is essentially LOGIN
(Prolog with psi-terms), compiling into C using the RISC-macro technique, and written
with the Wild_Life preprocessor. It is mainly written by Richard Meyer and Bruno Dumant,
with guidance by Peter Van Roy.
It compiles small example programs correctly and is
well-documented, but no guarantees are given as to its suitability for anything at all.
