Abstract
AGATE is a novel operating system which uni es disparate areas such
as compiler construction, operating systems, data compression, formal
languages, inter-process communication, and program representation. It
does this through a somewhat unusual means: context-free grammar rules.
We describe the ideas underlying AGATE and our current prototype im-
plementation.
1 Introduction
What constitutes an operating system? Embedded systems typically do not re-
quire the trappings of their general-purpose counterparts, and so a small operat-
ing system kernel which supports multitasking and inter-process communication
