    history: Alphard (named for the brightest star in Hydra) was designed by William Wulf, Mary Shaw, and Ralph London of Carnegie-Mellon University in 1974. A Pascal-like language intended for data abstraction and verification. Make use of the “form”, which combined a specification and an implementation, to give the programmer control over the impolementation of abstract data types.

    “Alphard is a computer language designed to support the abstraction and verification techniques required by modern programming methodology. Alphard’s constructs allow a programmer to isolate an abstraction, specifying its behavior publicly while localizing knowledge about its implementation. It originated from studies at both Carnegie-Mellon University and the Information Sciences Institute.” —Language Finger, Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library, University of Montana. is used in more than 300 colleges and universities around the world
