Event: student research poster competition
Date: Wed 17 Feb

The second-place winning entry (undergrad division) was the Prizm Toybox,
an integrated programming environment, designed for use in introductory
computer science courses. The interpreter for this environment was coded
in SML-NJ, using SML-Lex and SML-Yacc for the lexer and parser. The
interpreter is for the Prizm language, a Pascal-like language designed to
reduce the learning curve for the non-programmer students who take
Rose-Hulman's CS100, Introduction to Comp Sci.

The product will probably be distributed with source code, but it is still
under development. We just wanted to make this announcement for its news
value, and to toot the horns of Dave MacQueen and Andrew Appel, as well as
our own. Our thanks to MacQueen and Appel for SML-NJ!
