Descriptive Intermediate Attributed Notation for Ada definition language
(DIANA) A formerly de facto standard
intermediate language for Ada
programs, developed by Goos and Wulf at CMU
in January 1981. DIANA is an attributed tree representation, with an abstract interface defined in Interface Description Language
(Nestor, Lamb and Wulf, CMU, 1981; Snodgrass(?), 1989(?)). DIANA resulted from a merger of AIDA
. At the present (2001) it is no longer used by the major ADA compilers
["DIANA - An Intermediate Language for Ada", G.T. Goos et al, LNCS 161, Springer 1983].
