|1.||COOL - Concurrent Object-Oriented Language.|
|2.||COOL - CLIPS Object-Oriented Language?|
|3.||COOL - A C++ class library developed at Texas Instruments. COOL
contains a set of containers like Vectors, List, Hash_Table,
etc. It uses a shallow hierarchy with no common base class.
The functionality is close to Common Lisp data structures
(like libg++). The template syntax is very close to Cfront3.x
and g++2.x. Can build shared libraries on Suns.|
JCOOL's main difference from COOL and GECOOL is that it uses real C++ templates instead of a similar syntax that is preprocessed by a special 'cpp' distributed with COOL and GECOOL.
