Cool, an acronym for Classroom Object Oriented Language, is a computer programming language designed by Alexander Aiken for use in an undergraduate compiler course project. While small enough for a one term project, Cool still has many of the features of modern programming languages, including objects, automatic memory management, strong static typing and simple reflection.
The reference Cool compiler is written in C++, built fully on the public domain tools. It generates code for a MIPS simulator, SPIM. Thus, the language should port easily to other platforms. It has been used for teaching compilers at many institutions (such as the University of California at Berkeley, where it was first used or Shahid Beheshti University of Iran) and the software is stable.
This language is unrelated to the COOL language included in CLIPS.
