SuperCollider Language Specification
As it is the canonical language implementation,
sclang has long served as a complete specification of the
SuperCollider programming language. This language specification describes the expected behavior for any
valid SuperCollider language implementation. Having a precise language specification outside the interpreter
supports the development of alternative language implementations and obviates testing and validation of all implementations.
This document is a terse technical description of the language behavior in detail. Those looking for reference material should consult the SuperCollider Documentation. Outside of a few exceptions for built-in types, this specification does not cover the SuperCollider class library.
This document is inspired by and follows the overall structure of the Python Language Reference.
