As a contribution to the debate "SDL in danger", I would like to report some
of my experience.
I have been working with and using SDL the last 15 years in various ways:
- I have developed various embedded and telecom systems using SDL.
- I have developed several SDL runtime systems. Among them some are used in
embedded systems with limited memory space.
- I have introduced SDL as as part of a model driven development approach in
several Norwegain companies.
- I have developed a flexible code generation approach from SDL to various
programming languages (C, C++, OCCAM, Plex, Java) and execution platforms.
My long and wide experience with SDL leads to the following observartions:
- save is easy to undertand and to use.
- save is essential - both for modelling the postponing of signal processing
and for modelling
the coordination of concurrent initiatives.
- save can be easily supported by run-time systems.
- save is widely used by SDL users in Norway (note they are many SDL users
In my opinion, the removal of save will not simplify the language, but
rather add complexity to modelling.
