The effective utilization and control of a computer system is primarily through the software of the system. Categories: Event, Summer School Tags: Comments (0). Whilst these are similar to the algebraic data types found in languages like Haskell, they are also more powerful since Whiley employs a structural type system. Union types are more orthogonal with respect to product types. I seem to have found a good idea where sum types originated and the reason why we don't need them in a programming language. There are different types of software that can be used to direct the computer system. Programming language researchers have identified several kinds of polymorphism, including subtype polymorphism, ad-hoc polymorphism and parametric polymorphism. For example, conjunction is common (manifested as pair, tuple, or record types in a programming language), but disjunction (corresponding to variant types) is less common though no less important. Many languages like C++ , C# , and Java allow you to create objects that represent simple types like integer or float . Different types of Programming Language. I would be willing to place a bet that most computer programmers have, on multiple occasions, expressed an opinion about the desirability of certain kinds of type systems in programming languages.

See the SICSA Summer School on Types and Programming Languages web site for further details. Types and Programming Languages, Benjamin C. His papers on definitional interpreters, syntactic control of interference, practical intersection types, and Algol-like programming languages are widely cited.
