Language for Protocol Compilation

Eddie Kohler, Frans Kaashoek, David Montgomery; LCS at MIT (PDOS group) 1998

from PROLAC home page:
"Prolac is a programming language designed for writing readable, modular, extensible, and efficient network protocol implementations. It was designed pragmatically, for implementation, rather than as a prescriptive specification language with interesting theoretical properties. Object-oriented languages, functional languages, C, and Yacc are the strongest influences on its design. This combination of influences -- and a focus on minimal, elegant syntax -- led to some novel features (module operators, for instance), despite a general preference for time-tested techniques."
