29 The case of Scheme from AIM-848 Evolution of Software Languages 29

30 Scheme and Actors This work developed out of an initial attempt to understand the. actorness of actors. Steele thought he understood it, but couldn't explain it; Sussman suggested the experimental approach of actually building an "ACTORS interpreter". This interpreter attempted to intermix the use of actors and LISP lambda expressions in a clean manner. When it was completed, we discovered that the "actors" and the lambda expressions were identical in implementation. Once we had discovered this, all the rest fell into place, and it was only natural to begin thinking about actors in terms of lambda calculus. The original interpreter was call-by-name for various reasons from AIM-349 Evolution of Software Languages 30

33 Semantics for Scheme1 AIM-349 informal lambda-calculus substitution semantics AIM-452 informal AIM-848 (RRRS)... a formal definition of the semantics of Scheme will be included in a separate report... R3RS denotational semantics + rewrite rules R4RS denotational semantics + rewrite rules + macros (added support for immutables) R5RS denotational semantics + syntactic forms R6RS operational semantics R7RS Evolution of Software Languages 33 denotational semantics + syntactic forms (added support for dynamic-wind)

34 Semantics for Scheme2 Page 33 from R3RS Evolution of Software Languages 34

35 e.g. argument evaluation (4) The argument forms (and procedure f'orm) may in principle be evaluated i n any order. This is unlike the usual LISP left-to-right order. (All SCHEI'lE interpreters implemented so far have in fact performed left-to-right evaluation, but we do not wish programs to depend on this fact. Indeed, the~e are some reasons why a clever interpreter might want to evaluate them right-to-left, e.g. to get things on a stack in the correct order.} AIM-452 A list whose first element is not the keyword of a special form indicates a procedure eall. The operator and operand expressions arevaluated and the resulting procedure is passed the resulting arguments. In contrast to other dialects of Lisp the order of evaluation is not specified, and the operator expression and the operand expressions are always evaluated with the same evaluation rules. AIM-848 R3RS R7RS \ R6RS The order of evaluation within a call is unspecified. We mimic that here by applying arbitrary permutations permute and unpermute, which must be inverses, to the arguments in a call before and after they are evaluated. This {still requires is not quite right since it suggests, incorrectly, } that the order of evaluation is constant throughout a program (for any given number of arguments), but it is a closer approximation to the intended semantics than a left-to-right evaluation would be.
