Here are some examples of programming languages that use the patterns we just saw.
Interpret MUS Directly -
In the wider world of programming, an example of a pure interpreter is the
original 1960 LISP.
Steve Russell wrote an implementation of
eval for LISP, and so created the
first interpreter for a high level language.
It directly interpreted LISP abstract syntax trees (s-expressions).
Precompile MUS to NOTE, interpret NOTE - An example of a language that uses this strategy is UCSD Pascal. The Pascal program is precompiled into p-code, which is then interpreted on the target machine.
Online compile MUS to NOTE, interpret NOTE - Lua uses this strategy. Source code is parsed and compiled into bytecode as needed, then the bytecode is interpreted on the target.
