Best-Fit Pattern Matching

  • This report shows that dispatching of methods in object oriented languages is in principle the same as best fit pattern matching. A general conceptual description of best fit pattern matching is presented. Many object oriented features are modelled by means of the general concept. This shows that simple methods, multi methods, overloading of functions, pattern matching, dynamic and union types, and extendable records can be combined in a single comprehensive concept.
