Abstract:Compose* is a research programming language, this means that the syntax changes more often then an industrial programming language. For each new feature an addition is made to the syntax and this has lead to the situation that the syntax has several redundant parts. In order to get the syntax streamlined again and to fix some major issues an analysis and redesign of the Compose* language is in place. The analysis of the language will form the basis for the Compose* Annotated Reference Manual and will cover both syntax and semantics. The redesign will focus on increasing reusability and expressiveness while keeping the syntax as concise as possible. Reusability of code written in Compose* will be improved with the introduction of filter module parameters. These can be compared with parameters as in an object-oriented programming language. The increase of expressiveness is achieved with replacing the old filter specification with a new canonical form.
