The programming language MiniLAX (Mini LAnguage eXample) is a Pascal relative. To be more specific, it is a subset of the example language LAX [14], which is used to illustrate problems in compiler construction. MiniLAX contains a carefully selected set of language concepts:

  • types

  • type coercion

  • overloaded operators

  • arrays

  • procedures

  • reference and value parameters

  • nested scopes

Concepts with a low didactical value and concepts that would make the language unnecessary complex have been left out, along with ``syntactic sugar''.
