Abstract:

The concept of a noninterruptable atomic function has been used for describing operating systems. In this note we suggest certain extensions to this model of operating systems for use in language directed architectures called Directly Executed Languages--DELs. Four categories of functions are defined absorbed functions, atomic functions, constructed functions, and metalingual functions. A possible scenario as to the relationship between this functional partitioning and operating system routines is described. Author
