|Using set-theoretic primitives as a conceptual tool in programming. Includes a discussion of the SETL and MIRANDA languages. Set-oriented programming means thinking and designing programs with set data abstractions in mind, trying to really exploit all the potentialities offered by set constructs. Non-determinism in set unification, set constraints, intensional set formers, are all features that potentially allow one to write programs in a more declarative fashion, and definitively to obtain simpler and more readable programs.|
