A proprietary programming environment with strong numerical and graphing features. The down sides are that you need a licence to run this on all machines, and the syntax is particularly poor. It is also quite slow for some programming cases.
Information Description Language
nterface efinition anguage - A specification for creating objects used in a distributed applications environment. Developers can model a legacy component using the same IDL used for creating new objects then write a code (known as a ‘wrapper') to translate between a standard bus and legacy interfaces.
nterface efinition anguage is a generic term for a language that lets a program or object written in one language communicate with another program written in an unknown language.
A reprinting of your US or Canadian license into several different languages, intended to expedite the process of dealing with authorities in the event that you are pulled over. You are required in some countries at the rental counter to have one, including but not limited to Austria, Greece and Poland. In some countries such as Spain and Italy you can be fined up to 200 Euro on the spot if you are pulled over and do not have one. They cost between 15 and 20 US dollars and can be purchased through your local AAA or CAA or online from the National Automobile Club.
A high-level declarative language that provides the syntax for interface definitions.
Interface Definition Language. Simple language for specifying data types that can be exchanged by CORBA compliant programs. IDL files by default have the extension .idl.
Interface Definition Language; a programming language independent format for specifying interfaces (methods and data).
Interactive Data Language
Interface Definition Language. APIs written in the Java programming language that provide standards-based interoperability and connectivity with CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture).
See Interface Definition Language (IDL).
Interface Definition Language. OMG CORBA specification providing a standard language for defining the interfaces to objects that clients call and object implementations provide.
A high-level, programming-language-neutral description of the services an object or interface will provide.
Interface Definition Language. In SOM, the formal language (independent of any programming language) by which the interface for a class of objects is defined in a .idl file, which the SOM Compiler then interprets to create an implementation template file and binding files. SOM's Interface Definition Language is fully compliant with standards established by the Object Management Group's Common Object Request Broker Architecture ( CORBA).
Abbreviation for Interface Definition Language. IDL is a descriptive language used to specify the interfaces of objects.
Interface Definition Language. The language with which one makes a language-independent description of an interface. Part of CORBA. Defined by the OMG.
Interface Description Language. A language-independent way to describe a module interface. IDL is compiled by an IDL compiler to generate header files which describe XPCOM interfaces. Mozilla uses both DOM IDL (compiled by idlc), for DOM and parts of layout, and XPIDL (compiled by xpidl), for everything else. In the future, DOM IDL will be replaced by XPIDL.
Interface Definition Language, a language for describing functional interfaces for remote procedure calls (RPCs), so that a compiler can generate proxy and stub code that marshals parameters between machines.
Interface Definition Language. A contractual, neutral and declarative language that specifies an objects boundaries and its interfaces. IDL provides operating system independent and programming language independent interfaces to all services and components that reside an a CORBA bus.
Interface Definition Language. Interface definition language is the standard API for calling CORBA services.
Interface Definition Language. External client applications use CORBA IDL to exchange XML encoded request and response streams with the CORBA XML agent running on the router
IDL is an acronym for the Interface Definition Language that enables different Object Request Brokers (ORBs) to communicate through the TCP/IP-based protocol called Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (IIOP). IDL differs from a computer language such as C because software developers use IDL to create descriptions of an interface rather than executable programs. CORBA provides a Java-to-IDL mapping standard. An IDL mapping deals with language-specific data types and threads of control. An object-oriented language can have a one-to-one correspondence between CORBA object and language object. A procedural programming language, however, requires a "stub" interface.
Interface Definition Language. IDL is used to describe the interfaces that client objects call and that object implementations provide. Such IDL interface definition fully specifies each operation's parameters and provides the information needed to develop client applications that use the interface's operations.
Interface Definition Language. A high-level language that allows software developers to define the interfaces for object-oriented software components.
Interface Definition Language. The platform-independent language that CORBA specifies for defining the interface to a CORBA component. You use a tool like idl2java to convert IDL to Java code.
An Interface Definition Language ( IDL) is used to define the interfaces for accessing and operating upon objects. Examples of IDLs are the Object Management Group's IDL , Microsoft's IDL , and Sun's Java IDL .
Interface Definition Language. Et format uafhÃ¦ngigt af programmeringssprog til at definere grÃ¦nseflader (metoder og data).
(Interface Definition Language) In CORBA, a declarative language that is used to describe object interfaces, without regard to object implementation.
Interface Definition Language. A definition language used to define an interface between a client and a server. Used by CORBA, DCE and others.
Interface Definition Language. A CORBA standard for describing an object -- what it does and how to use it.
Interface definition language. A declarative language, independent of any operating system or programming language, used to define the interfaces that object implementations provide and client objects call.It is used in distributed component architectures such as CORBA and COM.
Interface Definition Language. The OMG-standard language for defining the interfaces for all CORBA objects. An IDL interface declares a set of operations, exceptions, and attributes. Each operation has a signature, which defines its name, parameters, result and exceptions. OMG IDL does not include implementations for operations; rather, as its name indicates, it is simply a language for defining interfaces. The complete syntax and semantics for IDL are available in the OMG specification at the OMG web site.
Interface Definition Language. A method for component developers to describe a component's API enabling applications to pass parameters and receive results during component execution.
Interface Definition Language. The language defines interfaces between client and server programs using COM technology. Microsoft
