Data Objects

George A. Howlett
Bell Labs Innovations for Lucent Technologies


Scripting languages are great for gluing together components, but they suffer as the complexity or size of data scales upward. Data objects solve this problem by marrying both high-level and low-level programming styles. Data objects are self-contained representations of data. They define both the structure of the data and the methods to access it. Data may be accessed through both Tcl and a C interface. This paper will describe two such data objects, a vector and table object.
