language developed in 1990 by the MELD Project of the
Programming Systems Laboratory at Columbia University.
MELDC is a redesign of MELD based on C.
The core of the architecture is a micro-kernel (the MELDC
kernel), which encapsulates a minimum set of entities that
cannot be modelled as objects. All components outside of the
kernel are implemented as objects in MELDC itself and are
modularised in the MELDC libraries. MELDC is reflective in
three dimensions: structural, computational and architectural.
The structural reflection indicates that classes and
meta-classes are objects, which are written in MELDC. The
computational reflection means that object behaviours can be
computed and extended at run time. The architectural
reflection indicates that new features/properties
(e.g. persistency and remoteness) can be constructed in MELDC.
