TenDRA Distribution Format

Country: United Kingdom
Designed 1992

Intermediate language, a close relative of ANDF. A TDF program is an ASCII stream describing an abstract syntax tree.

TDF (standing for TenDRA Distribution Format) is the compiler intermediate language, which lies at the heart of the TenDRA technology. Unlike most intermediate languages, which tend to be abstractions of assembler languages, TDF is an abstraction of high level languages. The current release is based on TDF Issue 4.0, with experimental extensions to handle debugging in languages such as C++ and Ada (these extensions are not used by default).
