SAL Home PROGRAM Languages & Compilers


Reactive-C is a C based language for reactive programming. The idea was to allow a programming style close to C, in which program behaviors are defined in terms of reactions to activations.

Reactive-C (RC) programs can react differently when activated for the first time, for the second time, and so on. Thus a new dimension appears for the programmer: the logical time induced by the sequence of activations. Each pair of activation/reaction is called an instant, and the reactive approach is thus an approach in which one reasons by reference to instants.
