Abstract:

This document describes DALI Display Algorithm Language Interpreter , a special-purpose programming language for the creation and control of changing pictures which exhibit complex static and dynamic interactions among their elements. DALI allows complex organizations if interpolated smooth change, discrete change, and change in the structure of a picture to be generated in a modular way, in the sense that picture elements determine their own behavior and hence manner of change.
