POP-11 is a reflective, incrementally compiled programming language and its base environment. Developed in 1976 at the University of Sussex, POP-11 was initially designed as a tool for teaching artificial intelligence and cognitive science. The language supports object-oriented programming through its use of objects called "processes". Its syntax is based on S-expressions. POPLOG is a software development environment consisting of an integrated suite of languages including Pop-11, Common Lisp (CLISP), Prolog, and Standard ML (SML). This lets developers combine different paradigms within a single program.
