Semantics of Programming Languages
Articles on programming language research, from syntax to semantics, including source code listings, type rules, proof trees, and even some category theory. A good place to start is Mitchell Wand's Latex Resources, including a sample file that also demonstrates Didier Remy's mathpartir package. The following are latex sources of some articles, books, or presentations from this field:
- Pugs: Bootstrapping Perl 6 with Haskell. This paper by Audrey Tang contains nice examples on configuring the listings package to format source code.
