Programming Through Spreadsheets and Tabular Abstractions

Carlos Forster

The spreadsheet metaphor has, over the years, proved itself valuable for the definition and use of computations by non-programmers. However, the computation model adopted in commercial spreadsheets is still limited to non-recursive computations and lacks abstraction mechanisms that would provide modularization and better reuse (beyond copy and paste). We investigate these problems by identifying a minimal set of requirements for recursive computations, designing a spreadsheet-based language with an abstraction definition mechanism, prototyping an interpreter and evaluating it with examples.
