This document is a concise specification of Sather 1.0. Sather is an object oriented language designed to be simple, efficient, safe, flexible and non- proprietary. Sather has parameterized classes, object-oriented dispatch, statically-checked strong (contravariant) typing, separate implementation and type inheritance, multiple inheritance, garbage collection, iteration abstraction, higher-order routines and iters, exception handling, assertions, preconditions, postconditions, and class invariants. The ICSI compiler supported this 1.0 specification from 1994 through much of 1995. There are later specifications which supersede this document; check the WWW site
