AspectMatlab introduces key aspect-oriented features in a way that is
both accessible to scientists and where the aspect-oriented features
concentrate on array accesses and loops, the core computation elements
in scientific programs. Introducing aspects into a dynamic language such
as Matlab also provides some new challenges. In particular, it is
difficult to statically determine precisely where patterns match,
resulting in many dynamic checks in the woven code. AspectMatlab Compiler (amc) includes flow analyses which are used to eliminate many
of those dynamic checks.
A beta-release of the amc compiler is freely available to
download here. A detailed user manual is
also available. (.html)
(.pdf). Also, see release note
for information about additional features that have been added in the most
Once you have a copy of amc.jar, you can execute the jar directly with
a list of standard Matlab files along with AspectMatlab aspect files.
For example, one might run java -jar amc.jar myFunc.m myAspect.m.
You will find woven code generated by amc in weaved
directory in the current working directory, which can be executed using
any Matlab system.
Scientific Use Cases
A list of aspect and base programs along with amc generated woven code is given here.
