Abstract:

This paper reviews key issues likely to shape the design and development of programs and programming languages as efficiency constraints relax and computational power increases. These issues are 1 the use of the dictions of mathematics to define operations that can be used to achieve user-defined desires and expectations concerning an intended application 2 techniques for designing and producing the expected results the use of very-high-level programming languages for prototyping the development of application-oriented languages the design of applications using standard operations and the development of a library of modules which handle substantial fragments of important applications and 3 a languages usefulness, i.e., its general nature and its user-oriented features.
