F-Script (programming Language) - Message Sending

Message Sending

Message expressions in F-Script are similar to those in Smalltalk: they specify which object is the receiver of the message, which operation is called by the message, and any argument objects needed by the operation. F-Script supports unary, binary, and keyword messages. F-Script message semantics are extended to support Array Programming by recognizing that an array operation, such as adding to numerical vectors, must be viewed as the generation of a number of messages relating the elements of the vectors involved. Thus, if A = {1, 2, 3} and B = {10, 20, 30}, then in F-Script you can have:

A + B = {11, 22, 33}

Famous quotes containing the words sending and/or message:

    I have heard arguments ... in favor of pardoning D. M. Bennett, convicted of sending obscene matter through the mails, viz., a pamphlet [by Ezra Hervey Heywood] of a polemical character in favor of free love. While I am satisfied that Bennett ought not to have been convicted, I am not satisfied that I ought to undertake to correct the mistakes of the courts—constantly persisted in—by the exercise of the pardoning power.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Gossip, then, is content, a message about people; rumor is a process. It takes a bit of gossip and reshapes it, modifies it in some way, and passes it along from individual to individual in different ways.
    Jack Levin (b. 1941)
