DASL, or Distributed Application Specification Language, is a high-level programming language for writing programs that can be distributed across different locations. Developed by the University of Maryland in the early 1990s, DASL allowed developers to create applications without needing to understand the underlying network communication mechanisms. The language integrated remote operations and object-oriented features such as classes, inheritance and polymorphism. DASL was designed to work with distributed object systems like CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) and Microsoft's DCOM (Distributed Component Object Model), but it never gained widespread adoption.
