Abstract:

This document, the Rationale for the design of the Green programming language, and the companion Reference Manual, are the two defining documents for the Green language. They serve different purposes. The Reference Manual contains a complete and concise definition of the language. Following Wirth we believe in the virtue of having a rather short reference manual. This has the advantage of providing the information in a form that can easily be consulted, read and reread several times, as the basis for developing a good familiarity with the language.
