Componend Based Software Engineering
I'm trying to reconnect to main stream OO-world terminology. The
discipline of component-based software engineering talks about
interfaces and dependencies. Translating to PLT Scheme's large scale
compositional structure (ignoring the small-scale class / inheritance
/ mixin functionality) this reflects two parts.
Both require and provide interfaces and represent compilation units
- units: cyclic, no macros
- modules: acyclic w. macros
Presence of macros makes module compilation follow the dependency
graph (functionality defined in one module might influence language
semantics of other). Modules dependencies follow a directed acyclic
Units are more like the components in CBSE.
