Meaning of C+@ in English


(Formerly Calico). An object-oriented language from Bell Laboratories which uniformly represents all data as a pointer to a self-described object. C+@ provides multiple inheritance with delegation and with control over which method s come from which delegated object; and default methodologies . It has a simple syntax with emphasis on graphics. It was originally used for prototyping of telecommunication services.

Unir Tech has the exclusive license from Bell Labs to distribute C+@. Unfortunately Unir is owned and operated by well-known anti- IETF ranter, Jim Fleming, which may have had something to do with the language's rapid disappearence from the radar screen.

It runs under SunOS and compiles to Vcode .
