2 The user interface

 

The user interface provides several commands each of which represents a separate compilation step. The commands are hierarchically structured and top-down ordered as depicted by the indentation tree below: Each node can be called individually; inner nodes perform groups of compilation steps so that the root is the complete compiler.

The command hierarchy:

     compile
        horizon
           extron
             undeclare
             untype
             unmacro
             unor
             unlambda
             hitrans
             uncomma
           bastron
             untup
             flatter
             passtup
             deanon
             normalize
             footen
        verti
           classify
           codegen
The given order reflects the order the commands are executed during RELFUN compilation.
