Hi Marc.<br><br>See Paul Hudak's <a href="http://www.cs.yale.edu/homes/hudak-paul/hudak-dir/ACM-WS/position.html">position paper</a> on DSELs, where you'll find definition, motivation & examples. See also <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_J._Landin">
Peter Landin</a>'s "Next 700" paper. If you have questions, please ask!<br><br>BTW, I hear both "EDSL" and "DSEL", and I don't recall which is more in vogue and what reasons are for one or the other. Maybe Paul or someone could comment.
