    2929int i; // _X1ii_1
    30 @extern "C"@ {  // no name mangling
     30extern "C" {  // disables name mangling
    3131        int j; // j
    32         @extern "Cforall"@ {  // name mangling
     32        extern "Cforall" {  // enables name mangling
    3333                int k; // _X1ki_1
    3434        }

     35        // revert to no name mangling
     36}
     37// revert to name mangling
    3838\end{cfa}
    3939Both forms of @extern@ affect all the declarations within their nested lexical

    52 int @&@ ri = i, @&&@ rri = ri;

    6565In general, operator names in \CFA are constructed by bracketing an operator
    66 token with @?@, which indicates the position of the arguments. For example, infixed
    67 multiplication is @?*?@ while prefix dereference is @*?@. This syntax make it
    68 easy to tell the difference between prefix operations (such as @++?@) and
    69 post-fix operations (@?++@).

     67infixed multiplication is @?*?@ while prefix dereference is @*?@.
     68This syntax make it easy to tell the difference between prefix operations
     69(such as @++?@) and post-fix operations (@?++@).
    7070
    7171The special name for a constructor is @?{}@, which comes from the
    72 initialization syntax in C. The special name for a destructor is @^{}@, where
    73 the @^@ has no special meaning.
     72initialization syntax in C. That initialation syntax is also the operator
     73form. \CFA will generate a constructor call each time a variable is declared,
     74passing the initialization arguments to the constructort.
     75\begin{cfa}
     76struct Example { ... };
     77void ?{}(Example & this) { ... }
     78{
     79        Example a;
     80        Example b = {};
     81}
     82void ?{}(Example & this, char first, int num) { ... }
     83{
     84        Example c = {'a', 2};
     85}
     86\end{cfa}
     87Both @a@ and @b@ will be initalized with the first constructor (there is no
     88general way to skip initialation) while @c@ will be initalized with the
     89second.
     90
    7491% I don't like the \^{} symbol but $^\wedge$ isn't better.
    75 \begin{cfa}
    76 struct T { ... };
    77 void ?@{}@(@T &@ this, ...) { ... }  // constructor
    78 void ?@^{}@(@T &@ this, ...) { ... } // destructor
     92Similarly destructors use the special name @^?{}@ (the @^@ has no special
     93meaning). They can be called explicatly as well but normally they are
     94implicitly called on a variable when it goes out of scope.
     95\begin{cfa}
     96void ^?{}(Example & this) { ... }
    7997{
    80         T s = @{@ ... @}@;  // same constructor/initialization braces
    81 } // destructor call automatically generated
    82 \end{cfa}
    83 The first parameter is a reference parameter to the type for the
    84 constructor/destructor. Destructors may have multiple parameters.  The compiler
    85 implicitly matches an overloaded constructor @void ^?{}(T &, ...);@ to an
    86 object declaration with associated initialization, and generates a construction
    87 call after the object is allocated. When an object goes out of scope, the
    88 matching overloaded destructor @void ^?{}(T &);@ is called.  Without explicit
    89 definition, \CFA creates a default and copy constructor, destructor and
    90 assignment (like \Cpp). It is possible to define constructors/destructors for
    91 basic and existing types (unlike \Cpp).
     98    Example d;
     99} // <- implicit destructor call
     100\end{cfa}
     101No operator name is restricted in what function signatures they may be bound
     102to although most of the forms cannot be called in operator form. Some
     103``near-misses" will generate warnings.
     104
     105Whenever a type is defined, \CFA will create a default zero-argument
     106constructor, a copy constructor, a series of argument-per-field constructors
     107and a destructor. All user constructors are defined after this.
     108Because operators are never part of the type definition they may be added
     109at any time, including on built-in types.

    93111\section{Polymorphism}
     
    105123works on any type @T@:
    106124\begin{cfa}
    107 @forall( T )@ @T@ identity( @T@ val ) { return val; }
    108 int forty_two = identity( 42 ); // T bound to int, forty_two == 42
    109 \end{cfa}
     125forall( T ) T identity( T val ) { return val; }
     126int forty_two = identity( 42 );
     127char capital_a = identity( 'A' );
     128\end{cfa}
     129Each use of a polymorphic declaration will resolve its polymorphic parameters
     130(in this case, just @T@) to concrete types (@int@ in the first use and @char@
     131in the second).
    110132
    111133To allow a polymorphic function to be separately compiled, the type @T@ must be
     
    115137types used in a function, \eg:
    116138\begin{cfa}
    117 forall( T @| { void do_once(T); }@) // assertion
     139forall( T | { void do_once(T); })
    118140void do_twice(T value) {
    119141        do_once(value);
    120142        do_once(value);
    121143}
    122 void do_once(@int@ i) { ... }  // provide assertion
    123 @int@ i;
    124 do_twice(i); // implicitly pass assertion do_once to do_twice
    125 \end{cfa}
    126 Any object with a type fulfilling the assertion may be passed as an argument to
    127 a @do_twice@ call.
     144\end{cfa}
    128145
    129146A polymorphic function can be used in the same way as a normal function.  The
     
    132149all the variables replaced with the concrete types from the arguments) is
    133150defined at a call site.
     151\begin{cfa}
     152void do_once(int i) { ... }
     153int i;
     154do_twice(i);
     155\end{cfa}
     156Any object with a type fulfilling the assertion may be passed as an argument to
     157a @do_twice@ call.
    134158
    135159Note, a function named @do_once@ is not required in the scope of @do_twice@ to
     
    138162call.
    139163\begin{cfa}
    140 void do_once(double y) { ... } // global
     164void do_once(double y) { ... }
    141165int quadruple(int x) {
    142         void do_once(int y) { y = y * 2; } // local
    143         do_twice(x); // using local "do_once"
     166        void do_once(int y) { y = y * 2; }
     167        do_twice(x);
    144168        return x;
    145169}
     
    150174function. The matched assertion function is then passed as a function pointer
    151175to @do_twice@ and called within it.
     176The global definition of @do_once@ is ignored.
    152177
    153178To avoid typing long lists of assertions, constraints can be collect into
     
    161186and the @forall@ list in the previous example is replaced with the trait.
    162187\begin{cfa}
    163 forall(dtype T | @done_once(T)@)
     188forall(dtype T | done_once(T))
    164189\end{cfa}
    165190In general, a trait can contain an arbitrary number of assertions, both
     
    172197declarations instead of parameters, returns, and local variable declarations.
    173198\begin{cfa}
    174 forall(dtype @T@)

    175200struct node {
    176         node(@T@) * next;  // generic linked node
    177         @T@ * data;
    178 }
    179 node(@int@) inode;
    180 \end{cfa}
    181 The generic type @node(T)@ is an example of a polymorphic-type usage.  Like \Cpp
    182 template usage, a polymorphic-type usage must specify a type parameter.
     201        node(T) * next;  // generic linked node
     202        T * data;
     203}
     204node(int) inode;

     206The generic type @node(T)@ is an example of a polymorphic type usage.  Like \Cpp
     207template usage, a polymorphic type usage must specify a type parameter.
    183208
    184209There are many other polymorphism features in \CFA but these are the ones used
     
    219244Each coroutine has a @main@ function, which takes a reference to a coroutine
    220245object and returns @void@.

    123123\section{Virtuals}
    124124Virtual types and casts are not part of \CFA's EHM nor are they required for
    125 any EHM. But \CFA uses a hierarchial system of exceptions and this feature
    126 is leveraged to create that.

    128 % Maybe talk about why the virtual system is so minimal.
    129 % Created for but not a part of the exception system.
     125any EHM.
     126However the \CFA uses a hierarchy built with the virtual system as the basis
     127for exceptions and exception matching.
     128
     129The virtual system would have ideally been part of \CFA before the work
     130on exception handling began, but unfortunately it was not.
     131Because of this only the features and framework needed for the EHM were
     132designed and implemented. Other features were considered to ensure that
     133the structure could accomidate other desirable features but they were not
     134implemented.
     135The rest of this section will only discuss the finalized portion of the
     136virtual system.
    130137
    131138The virtual system supports multiple ``trees" of types. Each tree is
     
    175182While much of the virtual infrastructure is created, it is currently only used
    176183internally for exception handling. The only user-level feature is the virtual
    177 cast, which is the same as the \Cpp \lstinline[language=C++]|dynamic_cast|.
     184cast, which is the same as the \Cpp \codeCpp{dynamic_cast}.

     206        // Numerous imaginary assertions.
    200207};
    201208\end{cfa}
    202209The trait is defined over two types, the exception type and the virtual table
    203 type. This should be one-to-one: each exception type has only one virtual
    204 table type and vice versa. The only assertion in the trait is
    205 @get_exception_vtable@, which takes a pointer of the exception type and
    206 returns a reference to the virtual table type instance.
    207 
    208 % TODO: This section, and all references to get_exception_vtable, are
    209 % out-of-data. Perhaps wait until the update is finished before rewriting it.
    210 The function @get_exception_vtable@ is actually a constant function.
    211 Regardless of the value passed in (including the null pointer) it should
    212 return a reference to the virtual table instance for that type.
    213 The reason it is a function instead of a constant is that it make type
    214 annotations easier to write as you can use the exception type instead of the
    215 virtual table type; which usually has a mangled name.
    216 % Also \CFA's trait system handles functions better than constants and doing
    217 % it this way reduce the amount of boiler plate we need.
     210type. Each exception type should have but a single virtual table type.
     211Now there are no actual assertions in this trait because the trait system
     212actually can't express them (adding such assertions would be part of
     213completing the virtual system). The imaginary assertions would probably come
     214from a trait defined by the virtual system, and state that the exception type
     215is a virtual type, is a decendent of @exception_t@ (the base exception type)
     216and note its virtual table type.

     427\label{s:ResumptionMarking}
    428428A key difference between resumption and termination is that resumption does
    429429not unwind the stack. A side effect that is that when a handler is matched
     
    472472The symmetry between resumption termination is why this pattern was picked.
    473473Other patterns, such as marking just the handlers that caught, also work but
    474 lack the symmetry means there are less rules to remember.
