Narralog - A Software Trace Modeling Language

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Forthcoming Accelerated Software Trace Analysis training requires extensive real life like software logs with multiple software behaviour patterns. The similar accelerated memory dump analysis trainings (unmanaged / native Windows and .NET) also required good memory dumps but this problem was solved by modeling patterns of abnormal software behaviour in an appropriate implementation language such as C++ and C#. Modeling software traces with hundreds of software components, processes and threads would require enormous programming efforts. Therefore, the natural approach is to describe a desired software trace in some declarative language (or minimally imperative) and get a million line software log that models a specific combination of trace analysis patterns. So, welcome to such a language called Narralog: Software Narrative Log  or Narrative Logic. Please note that this language is different from Riemann programming language which is a language to describe software problems and generate software problem solving tools. Language details and whether a kind of a Metadefect Template Library will be used to implement Narralog or simple macroprogramming is suffice will be decided and announced when we further develop our training.

My Vision of TaaS

Monday, December 5th, 2011

On the portal I published my vision of software tools as a service in the context of post-construction software problem solving. The main part is software problem description language (SPDL) which was previously introduced as Riemann programming language. I have decided to keep the name.

Programming Language Pragmatics (3rd Edition)

Friday, May 8th, 2009

As soon as I wrote my review of the 2nd edition I found out that the 3rd edition was recently published and immediately bought it. I intend to read it from cover to cover again and publish my notes and comments in my reading notebook on Software Generalist blog. The new edition is also bundled with a companion CD.

Programming Language Pragmatics, Third Edition

Buy from Amazon

Hope in one of subsequent editions the author includes my Riemann Programming Language :-)

Riemann Programming Language

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Named after Bernhard Riemann, this programming language gives software defects first-class status as alternative branches of computation, comparable with multivalued functions and Riemann surfaces. Bugs become first-class constructs. It is reflected in the language syntax, semantics and pragmatics. More on this later.
